Eric Omondi had a wide-ranging interview with me this week. He spoke about his career, his relationships and what he has been through so far.
One of the things that people care most about the comedian is his relationship with his ex, Chantal. This week Chantal posted an Instagram message and some wondered whether it was a cryptic missive at Eric. She wrote;
A strong woman loves, forgives, walks away, let’s go, tries again and preserves…
No matter what life throws at her
I asked him what he thought about the message? He said that it wasn’t about him and that Chantal was referring to strong women in general and not herself.
Eric also divulged that he and Chantal were still on speaking terms, saying he had just spoken to her a few minutes before this interview. He said they were still good friends because their break-up had been amicable.
And what could the ex-lovers be speaking about? He said topics like her wanting to go to back to school and how her mother was doing? He also added that she was pondering a job offer that she had received from Emirates airline.
Could the artists move on if he was still talking to Chantal? He said it was possible as that ‘Is the way life is’. That prompted me to ask whether he had already moved on? He was a bit cagey with his answer but said that at the moment he did not have anyone.
He even asked me wittily whether I could forward him any suggestions I had for a woman? Did he have any advice for people in relationships? He resignedly said, ‘The world had become very complicated. 2019 is not 1994. Relationships are becoming more and more difficult. I can meet a woman today and in the evening we are in a total relationship.’
