Award-winning comedian Eric Omondi has revealed that being famous and broke is very tough out there.
Omondi while speaking in an interview with Milele FM said,
If you’re a public figure or celebrity and struggling in life, it’s easy for you to end up being depressed. You can do bad things such as steal to get your daily bread because you’re popular, and you’ll suffer.
Omondi, whose talent was nurtured through Churchill Show added that,
Five months after I joined Churchill show, I became very famous but was so broke.
He said being famous is tough and there’s a time when he used to board public service vehicles people mistook him for working on new projects.
Whenever I went to board a matatu, people would think I’m shooting something.
