Celebrated Kenyan artiste David Mathenge alias Nameless has lost control of his Instagram account with more than1.2 million followers to hackers in Iraq.

His wife Wahu told fans on Tuesday through an Instagram post that Nameless’ is not responsible for anything being posted in his page.

“Hey, fam. Nameless Instagram Account has been hacked. We are working to resolve the issue but for now please disregard any posts coming from Nameless Kenya account,” she wrote.

The page has been posting a lot of content from Iraq including on which an Iraqi city appears with warm morning greetings.

The already verified Instagram page is an important marketing tool for any artiste. It has become one of the metrics that corporates look at when awarding influencer gigs and ambassadorial roles for a company or product.

Nameless recently released a joint music collaboration with his wife Wahu titled ‘Te Amo’. It has been a while since the two released a song together with Wahu shifting to the gospel industry where she released several songs.

Since the release of the song one week ago, there has been an online dance challenge bringing to play known dancers and celebrity dancers.

Former K24 anchor Shisksha Arora is among those who have graced the song’s challenge. Famed Sarakasi Dancers have also coloured the song edging closer to one million views on YouTube a week after its release.

It has 615,000 views on YouTube.
