They sired a boy eight year ago but they went separate ways.That was when Wa Mama was an unknown musician struggling as a band singer.
In a past interview the singer from Murang’a revealed about the relationship with Munyeki but she denied that her songs attacking men are intended to hurt him.
Munyeki is already married but he meets Wa Mama and they assist each other where necessary.

She claimed they have never insulted each other or fought though.
“There are claims my songs target him but that’s not the case. My songs are not intended to attack anybody” she asserted.
