Eric Omondi Trolled’ For Fake Pregnancy… Netizens Call It Clout Chasing.
The known Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi who claims to be the president of Comedy in Africa has had a fair share of troll” on social media after his attempt to dupe his followers with a fake pregnancy announcement hit a snag.
Miss P, an up-and-coming singer, and Omondi announced their pregnancy on Monday, with Omondi promising to be a responsible father to the unborn child.
His baby mama Jackie Maribe was quick to comment on his post claiming that Omondi is a deadbeat dad.
The hoax hadn’t even made it halfway across the world when a wide-eyed Kenyan handed over all the receipts to BNN, claiming that the pregnancy was only a test run for a new music video that Miss P had yet to debut.
The same source claimed to have seen Miss P about a week ago, cavorting at a local airport, looking very non-pregnant.
Several photos also showed the upcoming singer getting a prosthetic belly, further exposing and embarrassing the two.
As if that wasn’t enough, Shakilla, a rising socialite, joined the fray, saying that she had also faked pregnancy with the comic for clout.
“First I was faking I was pregnant with their princess after doing so many retakes to have the perfect video then I see another badly edited picture of another naive girl saying she’ll be taken care of,” Shakilla launched the offensive on her IG stories.
She also claimed that Omondi was only using the up and coming singer for clout, after which he would drop her
“Next time for better try ordering at least a fake belly bump or get a good editor responsibility my foot tell her to learn from the rest she’ll be used and dumped after they get views,” she added.
Omondi’s baby mama, Ms Maribe issued a statement on her gram, moments after her snide comment on the pregnancy announcement went viral.
“So, all said and done, and you can read in between the lines if you want, I’m hopelessly in love with motherhood. And as a single mum doing everything on her own, my goal is to raise a brilliant person, as he already is.”
“Now, a lot of people have asked me to be quiet about what the real story on the ground is, I respect that,” Ms Maribe captioned a photo of her son with the comedian.
“But I also ask that you respect me enough to be really real.”
