It was indeed one eventful weekend all thanks to our local celebrities; who continue to entertain us on social media.
Well turns out that Eric Omondi and Avril Nyambura are not quite close; or rather are not not friends but just acquittances who happen to work in the same industry.
They both proved this over the weekend after Avril Nyambura unfortunately threw some cold shade at Eric Omondi who she claims had dry jokes. This is after Eric Omondi went on to issue a public statement addressing all Kenyan musicians. Through his Instagram page Eric wrote;
WARNING TO ALL KENYAN MUSICIANS⚠️!!!! We (COMEDY) are officially taking the steering wheel. WE ARE NOW IN CONTROL!!! WE WILL LEAD AS YOU FOLLOW!!! My Video has been TRENDING at number ONE for 5 DAYS in a row!!! And this is going to be the TREND for the rest of the years to come.Naona @bahatikenya aki STRAGOOO hapo chini yangu at number 2 anajaribu kuingia number one but nampiga tu MANGOTOOO…Sioni @khaligraph_jones anywhere on the whole trending list ni MDOMO tu mingi…
He went on to add;

With the message shared above, it seems that Avril may have caught some feelings as she went on to respond to Eric saying;
So long as you don’t keep saying the same jokes; we are okay with you trending.
Well, Avril isn’t the only one who feels that at times some of these told jokes have been recycled for years and years; and Eric Omondi being among the comedians who repeat jokes – Avril couldn’t filter the truth.
However her shade comes at a time when Eric Omondi was fully prepared with clap backs as he hit back saying;
Wait, who is this??? I was talking to musicians not former musicians 🙄🙄🙄🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
