Comedian Eric Omondi has suffered a major blow after his studios ‘Eric Omondi studios’ were shut down days after official launch.
According to a post Eric shared on social media, the studios located in Lavington were shut down by Nairobi Metropolitan services (NMS).
NMS issued the notice saying the studios are located in a residential area and ordered Eric to move the premises.
Omondi shared a video explaining that NMS had branded his famous “Eric Omondi Studios’ and Big Tyme Entertainment offices” illegal.
Eric further argued that he will not move his premises basing on the fact that in the same location there are other commercial premises.
“We woke up today at Big Tyme Entertainment to this ‘Illegal NMS, Site closed on 30/11/2020. They are saying we are not supposed to have a business in this area, while we have Coke Studios here, we have Azam TV, three schools here, offices but they are saying we are not supposed to have a business here because it’s a residential area. But there are mores residents that offices” said Eric Omondi.
The comedian further added that he will not bow down to pressure.
“First and foremost we are not going anywhere, we will be here for a VEEEEEERY LONG TIME. Vijana wakilala wanahukumiwa, Wakiiba wanauliwa, wakiamka kufanya kazi ma Cartels wanawaziba…But this time they have touched a Live wire and they will BURN!!! They are playing with the wrong person.” He said
Omondi said that there is a woman who is allegedly behind his woes at the Lavington premises.
“So am told there is a woman whom I have never met who is responsible for all this. I don’t know her but am told she even came to my studios during my launch. I dont know who has paid her but I want to tell her am giving her 24 hours to come clean this gate and send me a written APOLOGY. We have already recieved soo many requests from young people who we are already planning to do Audios and Videos for free to just support them. So they say that this place is only meant for residentials but clearly from this video you can see there are more businesses than residents. WE SEEM TO BE A THREAT TO SOMEONE I DONT KNOW WHO. BUT MY MESSAGE IS CLEAR “HATUTOKI N’GOOO” Mkitaka mjinyonge.” He added
