Why Eric Omondi is Not Amused by Kenyans

When it comes to a point where even comedians can no longer take jokes, you know things have hit the fan.

Comedian Eric Omondi is not amused by the way Kenyans treat their own talents. He opines that Kenyans have perfected the art of negatively criticizing instead of offering support.Citing the recently concluded MAMAs where boy boy band, Sauti Sol, was nominated for an award, Eric is disappointed that instead of Kenyans voting for the boys, they were busy poking fun at their inability to clinch the ‘Best Group Africa’ category at the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA).Here’s his statement;“Hey my name is Eric Omondi…am a comedian. God has been good to me…His favor and Grace has enabled me to achieve a lot. I have managed
to travel to a few countries because of talent.

Now one thing that stands out about Nigeria, South Africa and the United States(some of the countries I’ve been privileged to visit) is their culture…The culture to support their own. They have a way of encouraging talent and we
have all seen the results.

My beloved countrymen have a way of killing talents, we don’t support, we hate, we criticise…We all rise up in arms whenever one of us either ‘fails’ or tries anything new…recently i was once again heartbroken when our own Sauti Sol were nominated for the MTV awards…

We didn’t vote, we didn’t wish them well…We ridiculed them on twitter as Nigerians and South Africans celebrated their own…no one will believe in your children until you do, KENYA.”
