Self proclaimed President of comedy in Africa Eric Omondi's bill about Kenyan music is set to be tabled before the parliament today by the two youthful Members of Parliament.

Embakasi East MP with his counterpart MP for Starehe will move the bill that seeks to ensure that media cutting across TV and radio plays 75% of Kenyan music.

After receiving the bill, Babu Owino noted that they shall complel other MPs to pass the motion saying the task is now to the artists to give Kenyans plausible content.

"We'd love to compel the older MPs to ensure we pass this bill that proposes that 75 percent of airtime and airplay should be given to Kenyan artists. Now Kazi is on the Kenyan artists. We expect you produce quality music, danceable and seductive one," Owino stated.

This comes shortly after a dramatic arrest of the comedian last week after he matched to the parliament buildings to present to present his motion.

Eric Omondi was seen demonstrating a few meters before the Parliament.

Omondi’s demonstration, however, experienced a setback after the police disrupted it before arresting him.

“Don’t arrest me! Don’t arrest me! We will not suffer in this country! Eric Omondi is heard telling the police who roughed him up into their vehicle.

Omondi has for the last couple of weeks now been involved in online beef with artists after his words claiming they are predictable and boring.
