After dragging Sam Ogina into his drama with Jacque Maribe, Eric Omondi is once again courting controversy dragging Sauti Sol’s Bien into another ugly confrontation.
The comedian rubbed Sauti Sol, Bahati and Khaligraph Jones the wrong way when he took a swipe at them over what he termed as ‘losing direction’.
The controversial comedian claimed that Kenyan music industry took a downturn after the mentioned musicians decided to get married.
“My message is we lost something and my point is together we can find and bring it back. Sautisol, Khaligraph Jones and Bahati you are our only hope but truth be told tangu muoe things have not been the same. I cannot sit back and watch our Industry go to sleep and keep quite,” wrote Eric Omondi.
The comedian had early stated that Kenyan musicians are lazy, predictable and redundant. According to him, the aforementioned attributes led to a takeover of the Kenyan music industry by Nigerian and Tanzanian artistes.
His remarks attracted myriad of reactions across the music industry, with a section of musicians asking him to accord them the respect they deserve.
Sauti Sol’s Bien-Aimé Baraza however decided to hit back hard at Eric Omondi. He disparaged the comedian saying that he is the buttcrack of comedy.
Bien further said what Eric does in the name of comedy is not an art, he also noted that the comedian is only out to court attention and chase clout by trashing Kenyan artistes.
“Eric Omondi is the buttcrack of comedy. What he does in the name of entertainment and comedy is shambolic. It is not good marketing either. It is Clout chasing deadbeat clowning. That is not art. Our industry is in transition. We just got our groove back after a pandemic,” Bien tweeted.
