2Mbili made the insensitive remarks after Eric Omondi took to social media to call out Chantal’s boyfriend Nicola Traldi for allegedly physically abusing her.
2mbili said that the two Eric and Chantal were chasing clout in the name of Gender-Based Violence (GBV).
In a recent interview with Eve Mungai, 2Mmbili said he initially thought it was a stunt owing to Eric Omondi’s usual scripted comedy for the sake of publicity.
"First of all, they used the wrong messenger. When Eric came through with the news na videos showing Chantal akiwa hali ingine mbaya and the story behind ni kulikuwa na violence with the ex-boyfriend, si unajua zile mbwembwe za Eric? (when Eric posted videos of Chantal in a bad state and the story of her being beaten, I thought its the normal skits that Eric uses many times to chase clout.) So me personally nikachukulia kama kipindi, so I had to respond and react."
"I wanted to do a video to apologize to Chantal if she’s watching, the aunt Naomi and Eric."I’ve already called Eric tumeongea sana and I have apologized to him and would also want to apologize to everyone."
Chantal’s boyfriend Nicola Traldi was on Tuesday arraigned in court and charged with the alleged assault.
Traldi appeared before Kiambu Law Courts Principal Magistrate Grace Omodho and was charged with causing Chantal grievous bodily harm.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was freed on a cash bail of Sh 100K.
