Comedian Eric Omondi was arrested this afternoon following his new show dubbed Wife Material.

As seen on a statement shared by Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) – we understand that the comedian is being accused of producing and distributing unauthorized ‘Wife Material’ films; without the approval of the KFCB.

The statement went on to claim that the show not only violated the KFCB laws; but promoted unlawful content that would negatively influence the youth forcing the DCI to step in.

For this reason; the comedian who had not been approved by the KFCB will now be arraigned in court for contravening the law. The post read to say;

  The said comedian will be arraigned in court for contravening the law…

The end of Wife material?

Judging from how serious the press release sounds; we cannot help but wonder whether this will be the end of Wife Material. This is after the post went on to read;

The Board will take all possible legal means to curb production and exhibition of unauthorized films on any platform meant for public exhibition. Protection of children from exposure to harmful content remains our core mandate.

For any other artists looking to come up with such shows, the KFCB had this to say;

Any artist producing content for public consumption must ensure that they comply with the provisions of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222 of the Laws of Kenya.
