Comedian Eric Omondi launches own club
Comedian Eric Omondi has announced purchasing his own club called Maxys as he ventures deeper into the business world.
The comedian announced the move saying he was inspired to make investments after marking his 40th birthday, noting that he was looking to end the culture where after hitting sunset years, artistes turn to beggars.
“When I turned 40 on the 9th of March, I asked myself many questions because there has been a culture of artists doing so well in their prime but later turn to begging and we want to get rid of that culture,” he said.
Eric asked Kenyans to support him as he ventured in this new business which he is set to launch in 35 days. The comedian urged artists that are on their peak to invest in so that there isn’t a repeat of artists turning to Kenyans in their sunset years for support.
“I have been in the industry for 14 years and currently am the big brother and am urging artists that are doing well to have investments for themselves so that they do not turn to beggars after they leave the industry," Eric said.
The comedian said he chose to settle for a club because he was an entertainer and his small business acumen could work well in a club.
“I have tried so many other businesses which people don’t know about and I am not a very good businessman but a club is something I understand because in the last year alone I have been in over 80 clubs,” Eric stated.

Tanasha Donna spills on how artists pay to get awards
Kenyan singer and rapper Tanasha Donna has slammed music awards citing interference in the determination of winners.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Tanasha said most awards are given after artists cough up some money, narrating that she has once been approached to ‘purchase’ an award.
"Imagine I once thought of buying an award some years back (was advised to) then thought to myself... How am I paying for a trophy as if this trophy is what determines my worth,” Tanasha said.
Tanasha said she is confident in the music she produces and does not need any form of justification to convince anyone she is a good musician.
“Thank God I changed my mind real quick. Artists, please don't ever feel the pressure, You don't win based on genuine talent. If it's not you promoting them as per their preference or 'payola' (paying for an award) you can forget about it," she affirmed.
Tanasha lauded award shows that give artists awards based on merit.
“Shout out to all the genuine award shows who judge merely based on talent. Y'all deserve all the flowers," she stated.

“After a long period of constant harassment by Cashy against our artiste he sought her out of with a view to reach an amicable settlement out of court, however this approach was not successful due to her outrageous demands,” part of the statement read.
The rapper’s management further said there were orders stopping Karimi from publishing details the minor involved.
“Our artiste has restrained himself throughout the harassment and defamation of character. We seek to state categorically that our artiste will not be dragged into meaningless online wars and shall not be dragged into meaningless online wars and shall await the decision of the courts which he commits to abide,” the management’s statement concluded.
