Eric Omondi and Ezekiel Mutua are having a slight beef at the moment. Say what!? The comedian and the KFCB boss are at each other’s necks at the moment.
How did it start? The kerfuffle started after Ezekiel criticised Eric for what he termed as inappropriate content.
He asked Eric to put a disclaimer on some of the videos he has been sharing on social media, as well as put some respect on his name if he want to be addressed as the President of Comedy in Africa.
“People are doing all manner of staff, including some people like Eric Omondi, Unashangaa huyu ni mwendawazimu gani, kuna heshima gani unajionesha kwa video kwa njai ambayo haifai na wewe ni mtu mzima. Na unasema ati wewe ni King of Comedy Afrika. Sasa King of comedy, si ujiheshimu basi, king of comedy si uwe na heshima kwa Watoto na hizo vitu ufanye then you put a disclaimer ni za watu wazima” said Ezekiel Mutua.
But Eric didn’t take the criticism lightly and responded immediately in kind telling Ezekiel to stop using his name for publicity stunts.
He added that he has never seen him support the entertainment industry yet he is always quick to criticize.
“DR. Ezekiel Mutua. This is your last warning. This is not the way to address the PRESIDENT of an entire Continent. Stop using my name for these cheap PUBLICITY stunts😡😡😡…I have never understood exactly what you do for a living. You have not helped the Entertainment Industry in any way.”
“So you flew all the way to Mombasa to do this Press conference, hiyo pesa ungenipatia niongeze nazo Cameras Kwa Studio zangu so that we shoot more videos for young talented Kenyans. Please Visit Eric Omondi Studios and see what we are about to do to help young and upcoming TALENTS. Don’t ever address me or use my name again. You don’t know my story!!! You don’t understand my process!!!” wrote Eric Omondi.
But while many times Eric’s posts get overwhelming support from his fans, many of them actually agreed with Ezekiel on his take.
