Popular Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has broken many of Kenyans’ ribs on his way to stardom. He is now a global superstar making people laugh all over the world.
Very few people, however, know about the funny man’s past religious life. A little known fact about Omondi is that just like Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto, the funnyman was a senior leader at Christian Union. The deeply religious Ruto was chairman of the University Christian Union choir and later patron of the Christian Union at a high school he taught briefly.
Eric was a fellowship vice chairman while at Daystar University back in 2006. He later started his comic career in 2007 from Churchill show where he’s grown to be a global sensation. Posting on his Instagram page a throwback picture of his religious youthful days, together with his team back in the day.
Religion in Kenya, specifically Christianity in the music scene has completely taken a different turn as it is plagued with scandals of ungodly nature. From the scandal of Hopekid and Dk Kwenye beat where they allegedly raped a girl and infected her with herpes, to Willy Paul’s raunchy performances with Nandy for their new ‘Hallelujah’ song.
The most recent scandal that happened but a few days ago involved beloved gospel artist Mr Seed who reportedly cheated on his wife and mother of one Nimo Gachuiri in their home while she was away.
The girl claimed that she did not want to engage in sex but he insisted. Voice notes of his best friend telling her to keep the situation quiet have surfaced and made rounds on social media for the past two days.
The gospel industry has left people questioning what is the way forward as the ones to guide and influence are just as bad as unbaptized folk, if not worse.
Here are fans reactions:
