Voted the best African comedian this year, Eric Omondi is in Dubai for the annual African artists’ festival, where he shared his thoughts on Kenyan women.
During an interview, the singer, who has been under pressure from fans to wed his Italian girlfriend of three years, said it was hard to win a Kenyan woman without fame and money.
Recently during an interview, Eric said he was tired of fans asking him when he would get married.
This was after bloggers picked up a thread from his fiancée’s Instagram and insinuated that their love boat was on the rocks.
“Chantal and I are quite fine. She has been in Italy with her family for the past five months and we talk every day. I don’t know why people make such conclusions without asking us yet we are just a phone call away. That is lazy journalism,” said Eric.
“They are the same people who complain when I keep posting photos of Chantal, saying I should focus on my comedy. Now that I am busy with comedy and Chantal is in Milan they say we haven’t been posting photos of each other. Really!” he exclaimed, adding that his plans to wed Chantal were unstoppable.
“Yes, we are on course. I am planning to take cows to Milan. Actually, I want to make history by being the first man to take cows to Italy for dowry. I am trying to find out what the process involves. Maybe I need to inquire about yellow fever certificates and such early enough,” he affirmed.
