‘We vowed to stay best of friends’ Eric Omondi reveals how he met Maribe

Eric Omondi was interviewed this week by one of the radio stations in Kenya, with the man revealing a lot about his past. One of the things he talked about was his relationship with Jacque Maribe that has become the talk of the town after the revelation that he was the father of her son.

How did he meet the former Citizen TV presenter? He divulged that the two met while they were working at Radio Africa. At the time, he worked for Radio Jambo while Maribe was a reporter at Kiss TV.

‘Tulikutana na Jacque Maribe akiwa anafanya hapa. Mimi nilikuwa nafanya Radio Jambo, yeye alikuwa anafanya Kiss TV. Alikuwa reporter Kiss TV. Tukapatana tukakuwa marafiki sana. Tukaenda date pale Java Sarit Center,’ he said.

The comedian explained that the first date that the two had was at the Java at Sarit Center with their friendship growing overtime, even after they both left the media Group for other jobs.  ‘Tukawa marafiki na mimi nikatoka hata yeye akatoka akenda Citizen. Since then were tight.’ he added.

Jacque has a way of getting the very best out of her male friends and Eric is no different. The comic revealed that the two decided to remain best of friends no matter what happens,

‘We’re the best of friends na sisi tunajiambia kila siku whatever happens, we’ll remain best of friends. Tunajikumbusha kila siku. She’s a true friend,” said Eric Omondi.

Na Jacque Maribe!? Eric Omondi says he speaks to Chantal everyday

In the interview, Eric also talked of his friendship with poet laureate Dennis Itumbi stating that they are very good friends. They are such good friends that when Jacque revealed that Zahari was Eric’s son, Dennis (who had been rumoured to have something for Maribe) was quick to congratulate the pair.

Na Jacque Maribe!? Eric Omondi says he speaks to Chantal everyday

Eric Omondi and Jacque Maribe have been exciting Kenyans recently. Why?  Jacque confirmed that Eric was the father of Zahari her son, and they have been sharing a few images showing themselves in a state of bliss and familial love.

One would not be mistaken to assume that they were a happy nuclear family. And now comes the interesting twist for those who might have wanted the two to get together?

Chantal Graziano, Eric’s long-time fiancee’ and now ex might still be in the picture to scuttle those plans. What do I mean? The comedian was recently interviewed by Dr. Ofweneke who asked him whether he still misses the Italian national.

‘I was married’ Eric Omondi says about his relationship with ex, Chantal(exclusive)

His response shocked many with the comic saying that he didn’t. That would seem harsh for him to say especially for a woman that he dated for many years before they split.

But there was a twist, he said he didn’t miss her because he still spoke to her on a daily basis! Not only that! Eric went on to call her during the show to prove his words.

I don’t miss Chantal because I talk to Chantal. Yeah every single day. Let’s call Chantal I hope she’s on,” said Eric. The entertainer, however, refused to clarify whether the public breakup was real or just a stunt.

For a long time, the two who were the image of love but had a mutually agreed break-up earlier this year. This was despite Eric claiming last year that he would be marrying Chantal in 2019.

Sad…At least he has a son and a co-parent for company.

Jacque Maribe has made the month of October the month where she will live her life loud and proud, and that is on her Instagram page!

Is she dating Eric Omondi, Itumbi or Jowie? Jacque Maribe comes clean

Jacque Maribe has a lot to say and she is doing so on her Instagram page. Don’t forget that the former Citizen TV anchor had not posted on her page for one year since her arrest in connection with the murder of Monica Kimani.

Both Maribe and Jowie were arrested in connection with the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani and put behind bars. But after several court hearings, Maribe was granted bail while Jowie, the main suspect in Monica’s murder, was taken to Kamiti.

Before she was even released on bail, Jacque removed her engagement ring, a clear sign that the gloves of love had fallen off. She even went ahead to delete photos from her engagement party from her Instagram page.

 

Well, the former Citizen TV political affairs journalist, who publicly revealed that Eric Omondi is the father of her son, is a happy soul.

She shared a photo seated next to the comedian in a public area and captioned it,

Fans flooded her comment section and one claimed that she had seen her still wearing her engagement ring.

As zoomers association unadhani hatujaona engagement ring ya Jowie? Main husband ni nani?’ the fan wrote.

Maribe responded saying,

Am I still wearing it?

The ex-TV girl’s latest photos clearly show that she no longer wears the engagement ring, but normal rings just for fun.

Dennis Itumbi has re-emerged and yes, he has done so after the news that Zahari is Eric Omondi and Jacque Maribe’s love child.

This isn’t the first time that Dennis has shown support for Jacque and an ex of hers. Last year, when the former Citizen T.V anchor was in throes of her court case due to her presumed involvement in the murder of Monica Kimani, Dennis was there showing support to both her and her then-fiance Jowie Irungu.

She wasn’t the only one celebrating the birth, funny man Eric Omondi decided to throw his hat in the ring as a potential godfather for the youngin.

His reason was simple, as his and Diamond’s Eric business relationship had bloomed and become a friendship, it should also blossom to into the family realm.

‘We didn’t spend our childhood together’ Fred Omondi opens up about late brother

 

Eric and Fred Omondi’s brother died within hours of being discovered alive heavily addicted.

Fred, in an interview on Tuesday September 10th, revealed that

the last time Eric saw him was two years before he died, and was called to a lodging where our brother had OD’d, and sadly died in the room in that lodging, 

fredomondi

His family was tipped off about his location in downtown, and Eric asked the person to ensure his brother didn’t leave and was as comfortable as could be

the same night is when he died when Eric was going to pick him up to take him to hospital

after confirming and leaving to make hospital arrangements, he found him dead

Fred said the family had tried to help him out of his addiction, sadly he kept running away

It’s been 1 year since his death, we went through a lot, this is somebody we didn’t spend time growing up with, he would disappear coz of mihadarati, so from high school he would disappear, and my dad being a policeman would look for him and find him, and he would disappear again, and we would miss him. It affected Eric and my sister alot.

The brother died in 2018, and a year later Fred reminisced his death

it’s a good lesson. I am a witness that if you have the chance to stop this kind of life, stop it….

‘I was married’ Eric Omondi says about his relationship with ex, Chantal(exclusive)

Eric Omondi is normally very candid in the interviews that he gives. I spoke to him this week and he opened up about coming back to Churchill Show after a hiatus of 5 years.

He revealed that going back to the show was excellent for him as he considers Churchill to be his father in comedy. Eric has surely ascended the heights of celebrity and even had Kisumu County name a street after him.

Eric Omondi has grown a lot since he broke up with Chantal

He said that the street naming was an honour for him and hilariously added, ‘It is one of the greatest things to happen. I can go to that road to build, sleep there and even drive there without alcoblow.’

See Eric Omondi meet Seth Meyers on the ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’

The past two months, the comedian has been on a tear releasing video after video with many going viral.

He said;

 I also realised that I was taking too long to chuck comedy. Why should I take two months or 3 weeks to release something good. It should be daily! Uhuru Kenyatta is president daily, pastors are pastors daily. Comedians should be on fire daily.

Eric Omondi
Eric is back with a vengeance

Eric added that he did not suffer burnout as comedy refreshed him. He said that when he wasn’t doing comedy, he felt like he was working. A paradox, I know.

Was it possible that his break-up with Chantal was also fuel for his comedy? He responded by saying,’ It could be possible as when you are married…Maybe it contributed like 30%. You know your wife can ask you why you are doing a certain brand of comedy and it can bring problems for you.’

Eric Omondi leading Chantal on a horse

At this point, I interjected and asked him when (if) he had gotten married to Chantal. He said;

Bro, I was married. Kwani what is marriage? You know I have never understood. You know that there is a difference between a wedding and a marriage. A marriage is when a man and a woman come together and usually they live together.

Eric Omondi and Chantal Grazioli

He added that a wedding was a one-day ceremony, something that people were conflating with marriage. Eric said that he had lived with Chantal for more than six months and that according to Kenyan law, that qualified as marriage.

‘We are still friends and will always be no matter what happens’ Eric Omondi speaks on relationship with Jacque Maribe

I asked him then if that meant that the two had divorced after the break-up. He cheekily finished off by saying, Hapo umneipata!

Emirates offered her a job! Eric Omondi reveals about Chantal (exclusive)

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.

Different times Eric Omondi and Chantelle served some couple goals

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

Chantal Graziano, Eric's ex

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.

‘We created the best of moments together’ – Chanty to Eric Omondi

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.

The couple in the happy past

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.

Eric Omondi

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.’

7 Years Later: Eric Omondi reminisces meeting Churchill

Speaking at a Churchill Show event on Thursday night in Naivasha, he surprised the godfather of comedy by making a cameo appearance at the show, after seven years.

“In 2006, while I was a second-year student at Daystar, I was an MC at an event which Churchill attended,” Eric said.

 

“He was impressed by my skills. I was to ask for his phone number later, but he asked for mine. I waited for two years before he called me in 2008 to inquire if I was ready to perform.”

 eric-omondi-suit

Eric also recounted how he met Churchill, who taught him how to perform.

“I have never told this story to anyone anywhere. People keep asking me how I met Churchill,” Eric said.

“I used to MC at events and people would later tell me that I made them laugh. They kept on asking me to conduct other events. Then one day, when I learnt that Churchill, who was prominent at that time, would attend an event in the school, I got excited.

“I did not want to propose myself to MC the event. So I waited. However, I was given the chance and so I really did my best. I performed narratives and poems,” Eric said as the crowd cheered on, while Churchill happily stared at him.

Churchill

After the event, Churchill got hold of Eric and described him as a skinny MC.

Two years later, Churchill called him and inquired if he had been watching the shows.

“He asked me to watch 12 episodes of the show and to get ready to perform at the 13th episode. That was my breakthrough,” Eric said.

Blessed Njugush kicked out of his home by wife Celestine

Njugush is in a spot of bother with his wife. Why? This past weekend he went to support his wife’s BFF, Neomi Nganga at the much publicised Miss Kenya Plus World 2019 at Garden City Mall.

But the result has been friction in his marriage as he was caught on camera (by his wife nonetheless) ogling at the beauties strutting on the runway. Not only that, he was seen screaming as he saw the curvy models stream by.

Njugush with Celestine 1

Njugush posted the video on his Instagram page saying;

When you are caught cheering a favourite in a #missplusworldkenya pageant 😭😭😭. keep me in your prayers guys.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BznKZ_Jnsok/

The drama did not end on Instagram, or at Garden City, it carried on to their home as his wife he locked him out of the house that Saturday night.

Njugush had no option but to humbly ask his wife for forgiveness;

I am here to ask for forgiveness. mosquitos have really bitten me all night. and the boys club are laughing at me.

Trying to win her back, Njugush, of course, had to flatter her, talking about her beauty but Celestine was in no forgiving mood. She responded by telling him;

Stop distracting me away from the problem. what were you doing at a plus size event? And then what made you scream so loud at the event?

Njugush defended himself saying, he did not even notice the girls, his cheering was purely inspired by the splendour of the decor and the lights.

Some of his followers like Khaligraph Jones did not feel any sympathy for him and told Celestine not to relent with other posters taking Njugush’ side.

Bob Collymore’s Whatsapp message to Eric Omondi about his [email protected] swim stunt video

 

Early this year a video of Eric Omondi went viral. KOT were unhappy with it because Eric was swimming in his birthday suit with small boys. Many commented that it was inappropriate and sent the wrong message.

Eric apologized and has now opened up about the consequences of his actions.

He has written it on the day that Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore is being buried.

 

So on the 3rd day of March 2018 a video of me Swimming in River Turkwel in Turkana surfaced online and went viral. A few people found it funny, Majority were extremely offended. I apologized for the Video. A few corporates that were in line to Sponsor my inaugural Stadium tour which was in two weeks time were all over sudden not returning my calls.

eric-omondi-kenya

At around 12:46 PM Bob Collymore sent me the text above. He then called me and asked me to see him in the morning, I did and after along conversation about so many things he stood up suddenly and Said “Eric I have a meeting, I will Sponsor the Stadium tour forward me the proposal NOW!” This came as a complete surprise since we barely discussed Sponsorship

Here is the private message Bob Collymore wrote to Eric Omondi after he apologized to Kenyans.

Eric Omondi and Chantal split was a blessing in disguise for him (opinion)

Eric Omondi is one person who has revolutionised the comedy industry in Kenya. How so? He has embraced the power of social media and brand power in popularising his comedy. Something industry stalwarts have been slow to do.

He is the first Kenyan entertainer to cross the 2 million followers mark on his Instagram page, reaching that benchmark this yesterday.

Last month was a tough one for the comic. with Eric and his long-time girlfriend Chantal breaking up. Although he took it like a champ soon afterwards, his friend Joe Muchiri told Chantal that the comedian was drinking too much after the break-up.

Don’t forget that he had spoken of marrying Chantal this year, so the split might have been terrible for him.

While we can’t know if his message was facetious, what we can see is the after-effects of the change on Eric. I believe the split has reinvigorated him, especially in pursuing his art form.

Why would I say such a scandalous thing? Hear me out;

Have you seen the amount of work Eric has been putting out since his break-up with his sweetheart? Videos with Jacque Maribe and Vera Sidika this week are just a sample with many episodes for DSTV, just to name a few.

Eric Omondi
Eric is back with a vengeance

The one that really caught my eye was that he released a spoof video trolling Diamond’s ‘Kanyaga’ barely24 hours after it was released! Video drops the video today, the next day Eric drops his own cover! To say I was impressed is an understatement!

The man has been working like there is no tomorrow. It is like his drive in life is to prove to Chantal that she lost out on a good thing. He is a man on a mission; To erase his biggest personal failure to date with his most formidable work yet!

Eric Omondi looking presidential

This has happened in the past with other men. Just like the phenomenon of the revenge body, some times when men have a bad break-up they not only hit the gym but they also get very serious with their careers.

I will encourage Eric with this statement, Chase money and not women and the women will chase you.

The reason for his taunting is the much-anticipated AFCON game between Kenya and Tanzania that is taking place today night. Kenyans will be hoping that it could be the game which perhaps offers Migne’s side a lifeline in a group which features two AFCON favorites – Algeria and Senegal.

Video of Eric Omondi and Jacque Maribe flirting gets Kenyans excited

In the video, Eric can be seen getting handsy with a giggling Vera at her beauty parlour offices. We also get to see Vera in her most voluptuous form as Eric turns her around and we see her twice blessed behind. The comedian then goes ahead to tuck his hands inside Vera’s trousers as if reaching out to grab her derriere.

His caption was also a playful dig at our East African counterparts telling them that he knew that they had Wema Sepetu but Kenya had Vera! She, in essence, is the standard of beauty. He said in the video;

We have Vera, you cannot deal with her. We have a queen! Tanzanians, what do you have?

Kenya and Tanzania have an interesting relationship with each other. The stereotype is that Tanzanians view us Kenyans as aggressive and rude people who take their jobs, while we view them as meek, slow and lazy.

He captioned his Instagram post with the word, ‘Amour’ which for those who don’t understand, is a French word that means love or in their case, lover.

His ‘lover’ responded in the comments saying,

I love you ♥️ my partner in life 💞

Many of his followers were not impressed with the declarations of love. Some of them warned him that his relationship would end like that of fellow comedian Eric Omondi. Some of the comments are below;

Another trait in the comments section is that many want the relationship to end. Why is that? It can be explained by a German term called schadenfreude; meaning, the pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune.
