Hatutoki n'gooo" mkitaka mjinyonge- Omondi
On Monday, Omondi shared a video explaining that NMS had branded his famous “Eric Omondi Studios’ and Big Tyme Entertainment offices” illegal, asking him to move his business to another location.
An angry Omondi stated that he will not bow down to pressure and intimidation from people who want to sabotage his dream.
“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.
In a detailed Instagram post, the funnyman added the he is not going to move his offices, saying the area has more businesses than residential.
Eric Omondi’s post
“LONG POST!!! So today we woke up to this at Eric Omondi Studios.
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.
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 received 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 residential but clearly from this video you can see there are more businesses than residents. WE SEEM TO BE A THREAT TO SOMEONE I DON'T KNOW WHO. BUT MY MESSAGE IS CLEAR "HATUTOKI N'GOOO" Mkitaka mjinyonge” wrote Eric Omondi.
