Megarider (Original) Nameless first song.( recorded in 1999)

  • In 1999, David Mathenge (Monski) a university student who held a night shift job in a bank, made a call into Hits Not Homework. This was a show on Captial Fm hosted by Muthoni Bwika, who was at the time running a music talent competition.
    To his surprise he won the competition, and because he was not well prepared, and didn't want to disclose his real identity for fear of being reprimanded by his employer, called himself "Nameless" when Muthoni asked him his name on air.
    His prize was a chance to record a song with the top producer Ted Josiah, with whom he recorded his first single MEGARIDER.
    For those who don't know, A Megarider was a bus ticket that gave frequent bus users a special discount in the 1990s and early 2000s (now you know! :-))
    The song Megarider is a satirical song about this Nairobi campus student who tries to make the little that he has work for him. It talks about his challenges to focus in school, his challenges with girls, his love for fun & music, the pressures of society, his respect for his elders and alot more .
