Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has issued a stern warning to event planners of the much-anticipated New Year's Eve concert at the Carnivore grounds on Friday.

In a video, Eric claims that contrary to what many might assume, Konshens is not the main traction of the event dubbed NRGWave in partnership with K24Plus and he (Eric) will, therefore, not allow Sauti Sol to curtain-raise for him.

"I can promise you Kenyans it is impossible for Konshens to be the main attraction and to perform at the end of this event. It will not happen and if we allow it to happen then our fight goes down the drain," he stated.

"Konshens will not be the star attraction on Friday. I will do anything in my power to stop it. This is our moment please do not pull that stunt," he added.

Omondi's sentiments did not sit well with Sauti Sol forcing one of the members to respond and battle the 'curtain raising' chatter.

In his response, Savara disagreed with the comedian saying it's not about who performs first or last as long as all the performers will be paid a fair share.

"Ericooooooooo bana. Kumaliza show sio udeadly bana. Udeadly ni kulipwa Doo fiti, uperform vinoma hata kama ni wa kwanza. Mimi nilipe nilpige show nikadoz. Kesho niingie hustle ingine. Nyinyi piganieni kuwa show stoppers. Hapa nimekataa Buda,"  Savara wrote.

(Eric see, it's really not about being the first or the last performer at the event. Just let me do my part as an artist and cut my cheque everything else about being the 'Show stopper' is on you. I'm disagreeing with you on this.)

The Jamaican dancehall singer is already in the country for the concert that will go down tomorrow.

It will set the stage for Konshens and a number of Kenyan artistes including boyband Sauti Sol to usher in the new year.

Other artistes in the lineup include Khalighraph Jones, Fena and Benzema.
