Word going round is that former Churchill Show comedian Fred Omondi is dead broke, two years after he left the show. Without his main source of income, how has he been sustaining his flamboyant lifestyle?
Freddie laughed off this allegations terming them as just that…rumours. He also revealed that he did not leave his other show – Crazy Comedy on his own free will; apparently his contract was terminated.
“I never left the Crazy Comedy show. The contract got terminated. I have been working on major projects since then that will hopefully jump start this year. I’m bringing it all back home (KTN)”
On how he has managed to survive, he told Standard that he has been in and out of the country doing stand up shows.
“I have been doing several part time jobs. I have also been doing most of my shows in Rwanda and Uganda. What people don’t know is that the TV show gave me a huge platform and I capitalised on it,” he states.
Being the opportunist he is, he took the opportunity to clarify that he had not been evicted from his Kileleshwa home as also rumoured.
“At least now I can clear the air,” Fred enthuses. “Let me start by saying that the three-bedroom house in Kileleshwa is still mine. A friend gave me a good a deal on it and I bought it at around Sh7 million. I decided to rent it out and live in City View apartments next to Mater Hospital.”
He also laughed off claims that he claims that he had squandered all his wealth on women, partying =and booze.
“I have two rides; a BMW convertible and a Wingroad. On the matter of my so called love for the girls, I am a focused single guy and a proud father. I love my child, Shanice to death. She is the best thing that ever happened to me. Some people just want to destroy my reputation despite the fact that I have mentored some of them,” he attested.
