In 2018, Ezekiel Mutua threatened to take legal action against Eric Omondi for what he termed as an ‘illegal, bizarre and obscene video that violated the rights of children’.
The video in question was that of Eric Omondi streaking in Lake Turkana alongside children. A video that not only elicited public outcry but had The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) boss slamming the comedian as a ‘clown’ and a ‘bad role model’.
In a clip from the Chipukeezy Show, Eric accused Ezekiel Mutua of being negative when it comes to the Kenyan entertainment industry as he rarely has something positive to say.
“We work so hard as young people to entertain Kenyans in form of comedy and music, some of us have even gone ahead to win awards. Ezekiel Mutua has never picked a positive thing (about the Kenyan entertainment industry). Hajawai nipost venye nilishinda award but alinipost nikiwa uchi Turkana. The day Ezekiel Mutua will come out and say, ‘Have you heard the new King Kaka song? He did it in New York, link in his bio’ then he takes the leadership role, Kenya will listen to him. Right now I am telling you without fear I don’t care (about his opinion) as he has not supported me or my industry and he has been put into a position where he is the person we are supposed to look up to,” Eric said on the show.
