Jacque Maribe’s reaction after Eric Omondi was crowned King of Comedy in US

The King himself!

Love let you down Jacque Maribe – Dennis Onsarigo

Days after former Citizen TV Journalist, Jacque Maribe confirmed Eric Omondi as the baby daddy, she went ahead to congratulate him for being honored as the King of Comedy.

On Sunday, The African Entertainment Awards USA (AEAUSA) honored the comedian with a distinguished award for the Best African Comedian and another one for the African King of Comedy.

Taking to her Instagram page, Jacque posted a picture of her and the comedian with the caption, “The king himself, comedy is you. You done did it!”

On Thursday last week, Maribe revealed to the public that the funnyman was the father of her son Zahari, after keeping it a secret for years.

Mum and dad are proud of you

In an Instagram post, Ms Maribe shared a picture of herself, Eric and her son Zahari which she captioned saying that mom and dad were proud of him (Zahari).

“Family first. Happy graduation day Zahari. We, mum and dad @ericomondi are proud of you!!” she wrote.

The comedian also took to Instagram, where he shared the same picture without a caption. Omondi and Maribe had attended their son's graduation ceremony.

For a long time, it was only rumoured that it was Eric who had fathered Zahari something they both have never talked about openly.

At one time, the comedian admitted to have dated the former news anchor but could not divulge further into details of their relationship

The short and brief message elicited a lot of mixed reactions from her fans.
