Comedian Eric Omondi who has frequently been having shows here in Uganda is one of the most popular and re-known personalities in Nairobi, Kenya and greater East Africa.
The celebrated comic icon has come from being a broke, ashy and dusty comedian to being a funny, successful and rich comedian. And now he seems to be making moves towards becoming wealthier and I for one am happy for him.
The comedian who is known for his short and funny clips as well as his parody songs took a trip down memory lane as he shared details about his journey from being evicted in such a humiliating way to finally getting to the point where he is done with the foundation for his house and the walls as well.
Check out his message from Instagram.
Sometime in September of 2015 while living in Nairobi West my house was locked and all my stuff auctioned… I had a 5 month rent arrear… This was during the break between season one of Churchill Live and Season two… I was as famous as I was broke… On that fateful day my neighbors watched in owe as two pick ups carried away my things and as the Caretaker “politely” asked me to step out of the house so he could lock the door… All these happened at midday… AS I walked out of the compound totally dejected…I remember saying to God “You are my LORD make me Landlord one day” Here we are today. Whatever you are going through today do not be dismayed… It could be God setting you up for your greatest moment.
