Comedy great Eric Omondi and his partner in crime Chipukeezy are currently holed up in the the United States of America and have been lauded for lifting the Kenyan flag high while there.
But recent postings on social media show their fellow countrymen could be a having a change of mind. It’s like they’re thinking otherwise.
The duo have annoyed many after posting a video of them half naked, they’re wearing nothing but skins in the streets of Las Vegas. They’re looking like two African bushmen in a foreign land.
Omondi and Chipukeezy recently released their version of the popular South African film ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’ which they christened ‘The Gods Are Not Crazy We Are‘. They wore the same costumes in the parody.
Some Kenyans however seem to have been rubbed by the recent stunt the wrong way. They are not impressed at all. They think the act by the two is offensive.
Here’s what they said on social media:
“Where are our rugby boys, honourable athletes men and women, our swimmers, and our volleyball gals!” a user asked on Instagram.
“They really put our flag up there! This 2 fools, should stop using our Kenyan flag to push their agenda. Shame on them.” Another one said.
“Then you wonder why whites think Africans live in the bush… Hehehe,” one said.
But some fans thought the joke was funny and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
Last Saturday, on March 4th, Kenyans lauded Eric after appearing on one of the biggest American comedy talk shows, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
He wore Kenya’s famous running gear to the show.
