With many celebrity relationships ending in debacles just months after walking down the aisle, it would be pleasant to bring to light unions that haven’t imploded to the throes of time and the pressures that come with showbiz world.
Here are three celebrity couples combating the narrative.
Wahu and Nameless:
The singer couple tied the knot in Naivasha in 2005 at the peak of their careers after 7 years of dating. Yes! 7 whole years of dating.
The famed couple and music legends have been married for 15 years and have been together for a cumulative 22 years.
Like all relationships, theirs hasn’t been without lapses as Nameless, in 2019 with speaking in an interview with Radio Jambo, disclosed that he almost walked out on Wahu after she fell expectant with their first child.
With two beautiful kids and perpetual musical success down the line their relationship continues to blossom and show the bliss of marriage.

Massawe Japanni and Tom Japanni:

Tom is the current head of Radio Maisha and Massawe is a radio presenter in Radio Jambo, two rival radio Kiswahili stations.
Notwithstanding marriage challenges like the couple losing their child, the grief was formative to bolstering their relationship.
The two have tied the tied the knot in 2007, 3 daughters and about 14 years later their union stands stoic.
