Exposed! Is this Betty Kyallo’s mystery Somali man? Photos

Betty Kyallo has been in the news this year after her back and forth with her ex, Dennis Okari. After the brouhaha had settled down, one matter was still left to be settled, that of the identity of Betty’s mystery Somali lover.

This information had been revealed inadvertently during the back and forth by Dennis Okari’s buddy, Ken Mijungu. After that Kenyans did what they do best and came out with a few theories, all of them ending up being false.

Even Mc Jessy playfully threw his hat in the ring but Murume didn’t fit the bill. But good news people, we may have conclusive photographic evidence of the man.

Photos of Betty Kyallo’s alleged Somali boyfriend surfaced online after what seemed to be a celebrities retreat at Lake Naivasha Resort lodge over the weekend.

In one of the videos seen by Classic105, award-winning comedian Eric Omondi could be seen trying to follow Betty Kyallo in order to unmask the man Betty was holding on to.

In another separate post put up on Seth Gor’s Instastories, netizens were able to capture the face of the alleged Betty’s Man. The Insta-stories were later deleted but fortunately, Instagram Paparazzi’s had already taken screenshots.

This video shouldn’t shock people as Eric is very good friends with Vera and Akothee, even spoofing the two in prior comedic skits.

It seems that Eric is very comfortable being the sandwich as just a few days back the man posted a video with his baby mama and ex Chantal. One would say that that situation would be awkward for most men but not for Eric!

‘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.’

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!

Watch video of Eric Omondi and ex Chantal together after break-up

Comedian Eric Omondi who rarely shies away from the media like Otile Brown has come out to fan the flames of gossip after he posted a video on his social media of him spending time with ex-Italian lover, Chantal.

Yesterday, Eric decided to play a guessing game with his fans and followers asking them who was in town for Christmas as he showed a closet filled with lady’s shoes.

That person was his ex, Chantal who duly re-posted the video on her Instagram page yesterday, with her caption reading, ‘Thank you Eric Omondi for the warm welcome, and the wonderful caption that I will repost.’

In the post, Eric also took the time to advise the youths who think that after a relationship fails to work all is over, positively saying;

‘Guess whose back for Christmas? This still goes out to all the young people out there, I hope this will be a good lesson that it doesn’t always have to end badly, don’t kill yourself or physically hurt people because you are separating or can’t be together anymore. It’s never really that serious,” wrote Omondi.

He also explained to fans that before he and Chantal were an item, they had been great friends adding that it will never change. Omondi asked his fans to welcome the Italian beauty who is in the country for the holidays.

Kwani slay queen?! Eric Omondi wears make-up and wig in new skit(video)

Eric Omondi is one man who tries to break new boundaries in his work as a comedian. This means mimicking other artists and coming up with skits that are plain humorous.

The man recently debuted a new look. Which one you may ask? The one that features him wearing full-on make-up, with a wig to match and killer red dress.

I nearly got depressed – Eric Omondi speaks about his struggles

Eric Omondi revealed a lot in a radio interview he made this past week. The man spoke about his various relationships like the one he had with Chantal Graziano and Jacque Maribe, his baby.

He also spoke about the early stages of his career and how he had really struggled (as most comedians do). At the time he said that even though he might have been famous with many Kenyans knowing who he was, that had not translated into monetary gain.

He said in the radio interview that his lack of finances nearly drove him into depression.

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

While opening up on fallen comedian Njenga Mswahili’s troubled life, Eric said famous people are forced into living touched up lives.

‘I remember when I started featuring in Churchill Live, in the first five months, I was very famous but very broke. I could not walk in the streets. I would board matatus and many would think I was shooting an episode but in the real sense, I had nothing. I was soaking in sweat,’ the funnyman said.

While his story is inspiring, there are other stars who also have such motivational stories. A lot of people might know about J.K. Rowling’s struggles before she found fame for writing Harry Potter.

She has said before that times were so rough, that she even contemplated suicide. While writing Harry Potter she was jobless, a single parent, but she was grateful that she wasn’t homeless.

‘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.

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.

‘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….

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

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.’

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 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.

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.
