Award-winning comedian Eric Omondi has dared Nairobi Metropolitan Service boss Mohammed Badi to demolish his newly opened studios now known as Eric Omondi’s Studios’ and Big Tyme Entertainment located in Lavington after they were closed down by the NMS officials on grounds of being established in a residential area.
The two-time King of Comedy Africa in a video revealed that he woke up to go to work only to find the NMS had closed his studios.
“We woke up today at Big Tyme Entertainment to this ‘Illegal NMS, Site closed on 30/11/2020. They are saying we are not supposed to have a business in this area, while we have Coke Studios here, we have Azam TV, three schools here, offices but they are saying we are not supposed to have a business here because it’s a residential area. But there are more residents than offices,” said Eric Omondi.
He asserted that he was not going to move his offices and was focused on being there for a long time.
He added that cartels have been out to frustrate and intimidate the youth but they had messed with the wrong person.
“Vijana wakilala wanahukumiwa, Wakiiba wanauliwa, wakiamka kufanya kazi ma Cartels wanawaziba but this time they have touched a Live wire and they will burn. They are playing with the wrong person,” he added.
He mentioned that he was told that there was a woman whom he has never met that was responsible for the closure of his offices.
He went on to say that he was also told that the woman had come to his studios when he was officially launching them.
The former Churchill show comedian noted that the woman might have been paid to plan the scheme and he had given her 24 hours to send him a written apology.
He mentioned that since he launched his studios, his team has received so many requests from the youth who were already planning to do audios and videos for free just to support them.
