Eric Omondi’s trial on reviving the performance of Kenyan music is on the verge of succeeding after passing his bill to members of Parliament. It was not an easy task for the jester as it got him in trouble last week. His comparison of Kenyan music with other countries; including neighboring Uganda and Tanzania got him in some bitter conversation with artists from these countries.

His counterpart comedian Patrick Salvado went ahead to clarify that their musicians only produce good quality music, rather than relying on a policy to protect them;

”We don’t have a policy that protects our artists… Our artists just woke up one day and decided to produce quality music, that’s their biggest protection. You are pushing the right agenda with the right intention but with a very wrong approach. But for what it’s worth, you have created conversation.”

Adding on to the sentiments, Ugandan comedian and actress reiterated over the same and wrote;

”Wooooiiiiiii we don’t have such policies here my dear. Which Uganda!? Been here jealous of your struggles and victories so far if am being honest😉. I was simply heart broken that I would not be tickling my Kenyan ninjas in 3D anytime soon but I know beta now. We can only pray to have just half the balls you have to confront such policies. I get u 🖤”

Eric’s bill to play 75% local content is however, yet to be passed.
