Today, Eric Omondi one of the foremost stand-up comedians the country has ever had has nonplussed thousands of his followers on social media after uploading a video of his controversial wife material show with one of the nine girls while in a compromising state of déshabillé.
It is for that reason that I find it necessary to analyse Eric Omondi’s current behaviour on social media for the benefit of ordinary Kenyans more so the youth and lay persons pertaining online content.
Although I do not have the monopoly of wisdom and knowledge, relying on the explicit videos that the comedian has posted, as a law scholar and patriot and without prejudice to the opinions held by other countrymen and women out there, I intend to enlighten masses through this platform of Opera News and deconstruct Eric’s convoluted and warped behaviour while at the same time setting the record straight on morality.
I am apprehensive that, if unchallenged in the court of public opinion, the comedian’s massive followers are likely to be lured to believe that those videos are entertaining hence the comedian is right.
In my respectful view, the reasons behind wife material show and how flashy and catchy it is supposed to look like are myopic and do not meet the moral threshold.
To take you back, the online content regulator, Kenya films and classification board CEO Dr Ezekiel Mutua had already expressed his displeasure with his social media posts that were full of nudity but nothing has been done so far to stop that.
My criticism has honest intentions and I’m doing it for the purpose of enlightenment. Only that.
Given Eric’s massive following base on social media platforms, it is undebatable that his ability to affect other people thinking in the social online community is also high.
As more peoples throng to watch the controversial show, the more appeal Eric will have to companies and other individuals who want to promote an idea or sell a product but how will the nine girls benefit? That is a question for another day.
As at now let me embed screenshots of some like-minded reactions to my honest criticism.
Majority also wondered how the community, parents and siblings of the nine girls will judge them after the end of the wife material show.
