In a mocking message, award-winning comedian Eric Omondi has thanked the Kenya Film Classification Board boss Ezekiel Mutua for making his studios popular.
The three-time King of Comedy Africa took to his social media pages after the KFCB boss advised artists to be comfortable with criticism and people talking about them.
He tweeted; "Be comfortable with criticism and with people talking about you. That's how your enemies advertise your brand without you paying anything!"
He also added that it is one way those people who do not like them advertise their brands without the celebrities having to pay anything.
The former Churchill show comedian who has faced the bad side of Ezekiel Mutua sarcastically said that he agrees with his sentiments. Adding that he's the greatest marketer in the Country and the fact that he always does it for free makes it quite unfair.
"I totally agree with you, Sir. You are the GREATEST MARKETER in this Country and the fact that you do it for free makes it quite unfair for you. You singlehandedly Marketed my Studios and offices by calling them a brothel. Something that would have cost me Millions of shillings to do. Please have your office send me an Invoice to Big Tyme Entertainment offices at Maji Mazuri road Lovington. I promise you (and you can count on my word) I will pay you a total sum of Ksh 750,000 if you invoice me."
Last year, Ezekiel Mutua called out Eric Omondi for purposely putting out inappropriate content online. He admitted that the comedian is great at what he does, but he needs to respect himself and obey the law.
He advised Eric to use his talents to promote positive social values as youths who follow him must not think that good comedy is nudity or vulgarity. He added that the comedian should make a disclaimer in his content as he is mature enough to know what should not be viewed by children.
In a quick response, an angry Eric cautioned Ezekiel to stop using his name for publicity stunts. He added that he has never seen Mutua supporting the entertainment industry, yet he is always quick to criticize.
