Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has revealed that his current character, Divalicioous is the new big thing in town. Adding, Omondi, said he has been able to land lucrative deals with various cosmetics companies.
According to the controversial comedian, the Divalicious character will be officially launched in September in collaboration with a cosmetics company that has offered him cash. 7.2 million in a contract that will expire in the next three years.
The self-proclaimed president of comedy, Eric Omondi, has been trending on social media after several of his videos dressed in female attires went viral.
In the information that he gave, Divalicious will be the official brand ambassador for Nara Luxury Africa. He explained,
“Divalicious will be launched as the official brand ambassador for Nara Luxury Africa in September. If you look at the caption, I placed it alongside the video.”
“It is not only Divalicious who has been contracted but also Eric Omondi, who will be the event host, meaning the company is paying Eric Omondi and Divalicious separately. I am making money as everyone gives their opinions about me.”
Describing who Divalicious is, Omondi said that Divalicious is a 21-year-old who originates from Kisumu and is already creating a buzz. “ Divalicious is a 21-year-old who has arrived in the city from Kisumu, and she is already creating a buzz. There is nothing in my career that I have done which is ordinary, everything is extraordinary,” he said.
As much as cross-dressing may be highly appreciated in some countries, it appears very weird in Kenya for someone to cross-dress. Society views any cross-dresser as someone who is less a man. This explains why some Kenyans rushed to the comments section to castigate Eric Omondi’s action while some admired his well-done makeup.
