Eric Omondi Opens Up: Was Thrown Out Of Apartment,Now Am A Landlord
Comedian Eric Omondi has opened up about the financial challenges he underwent, despite being famous.
In 2010 while living in Nairobi’s Westlands, Omondi was kicked out of his apartment over five months’ rent arrears. “My neighbours watched in awe as two pick-ups carried away my things” stated Omondi.
According to the comedian, he felt dejected after the humbling experience and called upon God to make him a landlord one day.
“Sometime in September of 2010 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 neighbours watched in awe 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. #LandLordToBe”
Omondi’s prayers have been answered as he is currently constructing an apartment block in Kisumu.
