On 8th March, the comedian announced that the show was to start that night.
On March 10th, Season 2 contestants were involved in a physical fight at a city club during his Birthday party.
A video shared by Omondi via his Instagram captures the contestants exchanging blows to an extent of forcing police officers and stewards who were providing security at the club to intervene.
On March 11th, Eric gets arrested.
In a statement, Kenya Film and Classification Board said that the comedian was arrested for contravening the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222, which prohibits production and distribution of unauthorized films, and in this case his Wife Material series.
On March 19th, Wife Material Season 2 gets postponed.
Omondi said the decision owed to the fact that production “will take time to celebrate and mourn” the late President Magufuli. He further added that this decision was made “out of honor and respect for our brothers and sisters from Tanzania.”
On March 24th, the comedian announced that the show will be PG Rated, and therefore not suitable for children.
