On his facebook page he posted :

“Hey my name is Eric Omondi…am a comedian. God has been good to me…His favor and Grace has enabled me to achive alot. I have managed to travel to a few countries because of talent. Now one thing that stands out about Nigeria, South Africa and the United States(some of the countries I’ve been privileged to visit) is their culture…The culture to support their own…They have away of encouraging talent and we have all seen the results. My beloved countrymen have away of killing talents, we don’t support, we hate, we criticise…We all rise up in arms whenever one of us either ‘fails’ or tries anything new…recently i was once again heartbroken when our own Sauti Sol were nominated for the MTV awards…We didn’t vote, we didn’t wish them well…We ridiculed them on twitter as Nigerians and South Africans celebrated their own…no one will believe in your children until you do, KENYA.”
