Comedian Eric Omondi yet again attracted the criticism of fellow artistes after he became the subject of jokes at a stand-up comedy show.
On Wednesday, January 5, Sauti Sol’s Bien Aime Baraza shared a video on his Instagram handle where the joke against Omondi was made.
In the video, Anthony Ngaricha, a standup comedian and Master of Ceremony (MC) popularly known as Ty Ngachira recalled the argument and debate on Kenyan comedians and artistes that was initiated by Omondi.
“It feels strange to speak after a weekend where comedians have been beefing with musicians because a lot of musicians have spoken. Savara spoke, Bien spoke, Jua Cali spoke and said what are comedians even saying?” Ty Ngachira said.
The MC then took a swipe at comedians highlighting the personalities who speak on behalf of comedians comparing them to the likes of Sauti Sol and Jua Cali.
“However, do you know who speaks for comedians, Embaramba dancing, cross-dressing and Wife Material guy called Eric Omondi, so Eric could have come today but they wanted comedians so…” Ngachira said to the ululations and cheering of the crowd.
The comical show where Eric Omondi was attacked comes after the funny man and Sauti Sol Bien’s traded harsh words during Konshens’ New Year Eve party.
In a video that surfaced online, Bien confronted Omondi over his supposed fight to ensure Kenyan artistes do not curtain raise for international counterparts.
In his argument, Bien sided with his bandmate Savara who had previously disagreed with Omondi noting that it’s really not about being the last or the first performer as long as artistes are given good money.
Omondi who did not agree with Sauti Sol’s logic and approach on the matter stated that they were wrong since the band is considered to be among the best in the game and have already ‘made it’ in the industry.
“Who performs last doesn’t matter, I’ve been given my money,” Bien stated.
On his part, Omondi claimed he is fighting for upcoming artistes like the Gengetone singers.
“Kazi yangu ni kuwasaidia. It’s about the upcoming artistes,” Omondi said.
