Kenyans got to know of the existence of Tumiso Mathenge when her mother, singer Wahu, announced her existence in a hit song, Sweet Love. In the song, Wahu crooned about how she would love and care for her first baby, spending all of her days thinking about her despite not being sentimental. Watch it here if you missed that.
Well, baby Tumiso arrived in 2006 to the love and affection of her mother and father, singer Nameless. And the son went on to win Wahu an MTV Award. Fast forward 16 years later, Tumiso- who goes by Tumi- looks nothing like the average Kenyan teenager. Back in the day, the most a teenager could do about make-up was shiny lip gloss and subtle eye lining (without mothers knowing or seeing), semi-tight jeans and tops with some cool-looking sneakers.
But not Tumi.
The 16-year-old normally spots a full face beat of make-up, as her manicure is done often to include tips, gel and nail art. Tumi also dresses like a 20-something-year-old woman and has the attitude to match this lifestyle if her Instagram photos are anything to go by.
Check her out in the photos below:

Aside from being a celeb baby and a public figure in her own right, she also dabbles in modelling- having collaborated with supermodel Ajuma Nasenyana and is also the founder of Girl to girl Kenya, a foundation that ‘spreads period positivity.’ Tumi works to end the period-taboo mentality by talking about it and raising funds to donate menstrual products to young girls across the country.
