Comedian Eric Omondi has shared details of his wedding plans.
Speaking to the Star, Omondi spoke of an extravagant ceremony that will cost an arm and a leg. He plans of an international event, fit for his Italian girlfriend Chantal Grazioli.
“My wedding is not a personal affair, it’s an international affair. Kenya is marrying Italy and it’s coming to Kenya with all the benefits we need,” he said.
He has estimated that he will require Sh80 million for all the actual wedding and pre-wedding events including the dowry ceremony. But that’s not all, Kenyans will have to chip in to make this happen.
“Our wedding hasn’t happened yet because I’m waiting for you [Kenyans] to help me fundraise. I need Sh80 million; for the dowry payment, pre-wedding and main wedding. Soon, I will share M-Pesa number so people can contribute something,” he said.
His first move will be paying the dowry, in a ceremony to be held in Italy.
“I’ll go for the ceremony accompanied by 15 people, among them Hon Babu Owino, Governor Sonko, and Hon Jaguar. I will have to hire a private jet,” he said.
It is unclear whether the comedian is just joking, or is totally serious on dropping the wedding of the year.
