One minute man! Eric Omondi and Harmonize chased from a club

Drama ensued last night at the Mombasa Road-based Captain’s Lounge after comedian Eric Omondi and Tanzanian singer Harmonize reportedly gave a one-minute performance for a show that revellers had paid for.
In a video doing round, attendees of the event got angry and decided to keep the two entertainers from the venue.
A few minutes later, anti-riot police were called to the scene to try to calm down irate party-goers who were demanding value for their money.

According to the event poster, tickets were retailing at Sh 1,000 for regular, Sh2,000 for VIP and sh 5,000 for VVIP.

‘I have no child,’ Eric Omondi

Eric Omondi has declared in an interview with Wasafi that he has no child and no wife. The public knows that he fathers a son with Jacque Maribe.

In the interview, he said;

I tried to get a wife from my show ‘Wife Material’ but I failed. I am turning 40 years old, sina mtu, sina mtoto, sina bibi,” he said. 

Last year, Omondi and Maribe were beefing over their son when Omondi alleged that he is not the father.

This was after Jacque had embarrassed him by calling him a ‘deadbeat’ during a live interview with YouTuber, Mungai Eve.

Eric then retaliated by posting a much-maligned message on his Instagram page where he explained his doubts about whether Zahari was really his son.

In the post, Eric defended himself alleging that he had asked Jacque for a paternity test several times, something he said that she hadn’t complied with.

He said that the reason he asked for a DNA test was that the two had only ever engaged in a one-night stand, so he had his doubts about whether the boy was really his.

They later met and announced that they had come into an understanding of raising their son but it seems they are now back to the same mess.

Eric Omondi remembers being dumped by Chantal after spending on her

The self proclaimed president of comedy says he was dumped after making the public declaration.

“I bought a car, put up so many billboards and I was still dumped. I did everything…Nikikumbuka hio story ya billboard inaniuma sana roho, ilinicost sana. Kutoka siku hiyo naogopa mapenzi sana.”

After their split, Omondi insisted that it was on mutual understanding.

As you move into your new phase in life with or without me I want to wish you all the best My Love. The paths that brought us together are now facing different directions and as you move on in your path I WISH you the BEST life has to offer.” He wrote at the time

Adding “The farewell love note by Eric went on to show that they have parted on good terms. May you glow, Shine like the Angel that you are. I WILL MISS YOU. Every moment…Every Single moment. You are the best thing that happened to me!!!”

Eric Omondi reveals Butita was dumped by girlfriend

Comedian Eric Omondi says comedian Butita was dumped by his woman.

While speaking to Classic 105, Eric said they are working on a project that is big.

Butita is Eric’s friend and most of his scripts are written by Butita including the famous one ‘Wife Material.

During the interview, Eric revealed that Butita is currently single after he was dumped.

“We are friends and we talk on the phone.

Like now there is something big happening on 9th February…so we talk on the phone, najua ako busy, aliachwa an bibi…ni mtu pia anapitia vitu zake. So we don’t meet a lot, sometimes he calls me…gives me ideas and I add some meat to it,” Eric Omondi said. 

Butita was dating fellow comedian Eunice Mammito but are allegedly not together.

Their breakup rumors were sparked after she failed to publicly wish Butita a happy birthday.

Jose Chameleone supports Eric Omondi in music industry debate

Jose Chameleone has shown his support to Eric Omondi after the comedian stirred a music industry debate asking Kenyan creatives to wake up.
The comedian sent a message on Instagram describing how the ‘Tubonge’ hitmaker refused to perform at a Ugandan event where Nigerian star Wizkid was headlining;
“In 2017 Jose Chameleon refused to perform in a Heavily Advertised Concert in Kampala after a Billboard in Kampala City had a HUGE Wizkid Image and a Tiny Image of Chameleon beside Wizkid. It’s called Subliminal Messaging!!!” wrote Omondi

“Such attitude is very demeaning and disrespectful towards the players who keep the industry flourishing to be placed as underdogs before their own.

I can guarantee to you such a manner happens only in this region where the host artists are only used as bait to submit their fans.

If you are drawn as small on an advertisement that to me means you are better off staying home or in-studio to do your work than being misused.

Well, I hope your message reaches out to the concerned. It’s such a pity that greedy fellas are rooted in our darling industry without passion. Bless you, bro.”

This debate came after comedian Eric Omondi termed the Kenyan entertainment industry as dead. His sentiments have received reactions from artists among them Femi One, Jua Cali, Bien, Savara among others.

Children are a blessing from God,”

Jacque Maribe explains why she is an over protective parent to son Zahari

 

Co parents Jacque Maribe and Eric Omondi gushed over their son on Sunday in a cute Instagram moment.

Jacque recalled the difficult pregnancy she had with son Zahari admitting it’s the reason she is an over protective mum.

She tagged Eric in the comment and asked him to organize a family vacation because they need it.

“One day, while in South Africa, a good friend of mine @brianbaraka told me “uko na mood swings kama za mtu ako na mimba.” We laughed but to be honest it was the hardest trip I did, I was throwing up literally all the time. But I didn’t think I could have been pregnant. Because baby’s daddy @ericomondi had said we wait a while.

Then I came back home on my birthday. @wamboshiks my childhood bff had organised rieng pale Rafikiz Langata. Even included my mother who came for me and took me to the spa for nini nini.

Kina @ericomondi
Were there busy throwing raos. @catewamaribe
@njeripriscathy were busy dancing and showing love. Then May 2014. See, I had gone through miscarriages. During this pregnancy every single day was a blessing. I chose 14th, and boom, this cute child of mine came.

I am very particular about my son. I am so invested in his well being. I am his mother not for the name but for his life. So many times I would have lost him during that pregnancy. So when you see me being an overly protective mum, you know. And anyone who harms my child is the devil reincarnated.”

 

Jacque asked Eric if another vacation was possible like the last one they took as a family “another vacation loading, no?”

Dad Eric Omondi responded with a heart emoji captioning “MY PEOPLE” assuring Jacque.

Eric Omondi back to being skinny months after body transformation

Comedian Eric Omondi surprised many Kenyans late last year when he showed his new muscly body. The father of one  made sure he went all out, even doing a photo-shoot all oiled up and glistening showing his gains.

But it seems that all those muscles have atrophied with recent videos of the man showing the Eric we had all come to know-the skinny one.

A possible explanation for his weight loss is his poor eating habits which he talked about shortly after his marvelous muscle reveal.

“Naturally, I hate food and I have very poor eating habits so I was ingesting, not eating. I was on a mission and it takes a lot of discipline to move from 47kgs to 72kgs. I had even begun a community, ‘skinny people united’ which I have since left but it takes a lot of discipline and time and that is why from January to February, I kind of disappeared from the public scene.”

His muscle loss most likely means that he has backslidden on some of the habits that helped him have impressive muscles.

During his interview on the Trend with NTV’s Amina Abdi last year, Eric explained how tough the journey to gain muscle had been for him saying,

“Do you know how many times I gave up? Between February, March, April… I was in and out. Constantly looking at myself and wondering why I couldn’t see any muscles plus I was in so much pain.  But because of the point, I had gotten, I couldn’t go back. This has been 8 months of consistent work. I got a trainer and a nutritionist end of March, beginning of April. I started seeing results two months after that,” he added.

It seems that the motivation to keep the muscles on his body has left the wily comedian and now he is focused on his craft and wardrobe.

“Ringtone, don’t steal my wives!” Eric Omondi begs while praising singer’s new song “Fagia”

Ringtone Apoko loves controversy. In fact, I don’t think that there is an entertainer in Kenya who thrives on it like him. Scratch that. Come to think of it, Bahati is another.

But I digress. There are times where the controversy seems to chase the singer and this is one of those rare cases. The “Zoea Mawe” singer was the subject of Eric Omondi’s recent Instagram post today where he begged the singer to leave his potential wives alone.

In his message, Eric posted a snippet of Ringtone’s new song called, “Fagia”, going on to plead with Mr. Apoko not to fagia(slice him of those women). He wrote;

“The PRESIDENT will always support good music. Huyu Kijana ako na a higher calling and a gifting from above…Shida tu ni awachane na mabibi zangu…Am about to bring some of the most beautiful women in this Continent to Kenya from ETHIOPIA, RWANDA, SOUTH SUDAN and NIGERIA bwana CHAIRMAN tafadhali usiwafagie because this time lazima nipate wife. Naomba 🙏🙏”

Ringtone himself responded to the comment saying that he had no business stealing Eric’s women. What is interesting is that just two months ago, Eric attacked Ringtone, labeling his stunts boring.

The self-proclaimed president of comedy praised Tanzanians saying that they had far surpassed the Kenyan showbiz thanks to their kiki.

Speaking to The-Star, Omondi went on to slam Ringtone for being so old fashioned in his stunts

“….They (Kenyan celebrities) are predictable and doing normal things. You recently saw Ringtone pretending he has been arrested. That is old fashioned. They should be creative,” he said.

Funny how a few months can make a difference in one’s opinion. Huh…Clearly, there are no permanent friends in showbiz.

Anywho, check out Ringtone’s new song that has made impressed Eric so much so that he has praised Mr. Apoko. The song is below;

“That show does not belong to Eric Omondi and Betty Kyallo. And anyone who has to be paid is paid by Big Quiz Limited. We are hosts, Betty and I were contracted to host the show. There is a confusion, nimeona people are saying Betty and Eric scammed Kenyans of millions. We are employees, we have not chickened out, all our phones are on,” Mr. Omondi said.

He responded to these claims after some anonymous Kenyans reached out to blogger Edgar Obare, accusing Betty and Eric of being cons.

Comedian Eric Omondi has lost 21 Kgs since his ‘Wife Material’ show began

Some of the winners of the Big Quiz show alleged that they had not received the millions of payments promised on the game.

The show has since been halted, but Eric said that it will be back in no time. “Itarudi tu, it had some technical issues. the show is live, people are playing live. It will be back sooner than you think,” he said.

In the interview, Kalondu Musyimi also asked the comedian if he had recovered his pairs of boxers that Shakilla had taken during the shooting of Wife Material Season 1 show.

“She stole my boxers. She said it has my warmth and her warmth. Boxer yenye Shakila amevaa na hajafua, naweza buy ata 300k. They are expensive because mimi na Shakilla tumeivaa.”

A new outfit everyday for 8 months! Eric Omondi spent Sh 6.2 million on new wardrobe!

Eric Omondi has really invested in his craft. In a recent confession, the comedian revealed that he had spent Sh6.2 million on his new outfits.

The comedian explained that the reason he changed his outfits was that he had had the same image for 13 years and felt that people had got bored of it.

“Unaamka unavaa tu jeans na unatoka na wewe ni msanii. That is not what I want for my next journey. I am very keen to know why Bongo artistes and Americans beat us. Those guys know how to look good and they have different styles.”

Eric added that showbiz is not all about comedy or music. “It also involves how you look, how you smell. What shoes do you wear, among other things? I am a star and I need to look like my brand. I want to feel respected as a star while leaving my house.”

I don’t like fish. You will never find me eating fish! Eric Omondi reveals (exclusive)

He said his new look is unique and inspired by late singer Prince and other American singers.

“My new look will be unique. Every day I will be in a new look for the next eight months. I will also not be repeating clothes. I have taken my time with my designers and stylist to make all these clothes.” Eric told Word Is.

He said he took his time with his stylist and designers (Diana Chanzu and Gold Melinda) to import and design all the clothes he needs for that duration of that time.

“Kenyans are not ready. So far, have you seen those clothes and materials in Kenya?” he asked. “Before I started wearing them, I had planned sitaki wakenya waanze kunichekelea, asking me luku ilienda wapi? Anyway, I will take them slowly so that they understand.”

He also clarified that it wasn’t Michael Jackson who had inspired his look rather many other things.

“My look has been inspired by so many things and not Michael Jackson vile watu wanasema. I do not want to be ordinary. I decided to work on my body, my hair, dress code, shoe and also my comedy. I am changing my dress code.”

And how much did he spend?  Eric said the budget of all he needed was Sh6.2 million for the eight months.

I used to get angry…Eric Omondi on being mentioned in stories about Chantal and Maribe

Eric Omondi might be a brilliant comedian, with a lot of fresh content that gets Kenyans excited but it seems that Kenyans will bring him up more for issues surrounding his personal life than that fact.

The man who has a son with Jacque and also dated model Chantal Graziano, features more in the news about his exes than for his career, something that he has resigned himself to.

A post shared by Eric Omondi (@ericomondi)

In an interview I did with the comic recently Eric explained that this fact used to surprise him at first.

“I think I gave up on that. I think that it will happen forever. Initially, I used to get surprised and get angry but I realised that when Chantal is brought up Eric Omondi will always be brought up, same as Jacque Maribe.”

Adding,

“So when that happens nowadays, I just usually enjoy and say that is how blogs operate. Sometimes something happens that I didn’t even know about, until I get to know when I am mentioned. Pengine hata sikua najua ilihappen. It becomes news to me.”
