The self-proclaimed king of Africa comedy Eric Omondi has been arrested. Eric Omondi’s arrest came after he shared a video of women fighting in his studio at Lavington. This was during his birthday party where he had invited women material show contestants. The video showed women who were drunk fighting carelessly which led to police intervention. The comedians have been colliding with KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua over the content he shares online. Omondi accused Mutua of killing the entertainment industry in Kenya. Mutua even once called Omondi a mad man after he shared a photo of him half-naked.
