Comedian Eric Omondi has come out to reveal that the controversial wife material shows cost him millions in endorsements.
Speaking on Thursday, Omondi stated that several companies, among them a betting company, ditched him citing ‘unethical content’.
“I lost a lot. They said, ‘Our product is family-oriented. We do not know what you are doing with your brand- kissing girls,” he said.
“Luckily, I am the most followed personality in Kenya. I feel very blessed and thank my fans. It is because of them that I get endorsements. Sponsors see these followers who are fans and actual people, who love and follow me,” he added.
The comedian also claimed female critics of the show were just jealous.
“Everybody is saying I was using them. I don’t understand. Why is this so unfair? Wanaume tunaumia! Why is it not the other way round? Like there are only nine women in Kenya and I took off with them?” he posed.
The show's criticism was initiated by Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO Ezekiel Mutua.
In a series of social media attacks, Mutua bashed Omondi terming his antics as the immorality of the highest order.
Mutua accused the self-proclaimed Africa’s president of comedy of running a ‘brothel’ under the guise of creating video content.
