However, Eric has declared;

“There’s no going back now.”

He would even call his trainer to explain how he saw small bumps.

But the day he went to perform in Tz and removed his shirt on stage, the comment section was full of messages about him gaining weight and that is the day he declared he would not stop.

Before Eric’s confession went overboard and Amina Abdi admitted;

“You’re killing me!”

Eric Omondis beef with Ezekiel Mutua explained

According to the award-winning comedian, he does not understand why Dr Ezekiel only speaks when something deemed immoral happens.

“My main issue with him is: I have never heard him congratulate or encourage artistes. We win awards, I just launched Big Tyme studios but he said nothing. Even as a father, when your son comes home with good grades, tell them congratulations so that when they do wrong, you have the chance to criticize him,” Eric stated.
