Eric Omondi has advised aspiring musicians against getting married while their careers are still in the early stages of development.
According to the self-declared president of comedy in Africa, most performers prioritize their relationships over their careers.
The former Churchill Show comedian claimed that he has had similar situations in his past that almost destroyed his career.
“Msanii ambaye hajafika malengo yake siwezi kuuambia mwanamuziki ama mcheheshaji ama msanii wowote ambaye hajatimiza lengo lake awachane na ndoa,
“I’m speaking from experience I’m speaking from what I’ve seen,” Eric said.
Eric has advised well-known artists to avoid putting too much emphasis on their love lives.
He claimed to have witnessed well-known artists fail as a result of getting married and neglecting their careers.
“Lakini usanii I keep saying but people don’t understand me. I have seen many artistes wakididimia because of marriage. I would mention but I won’t. I have seen many artistes wakiisha because of relationships.
“Nimeona wasanii wengi wakipotea sababu ya mapenzi. Relationships need communication and commitment responsibility and accountability,” the comedian said.
In a separate article Bongo sensation Diamond Platnumz made it clear that he had no immediate plans to get married.
The musician claimed he will think about getting married when he is about to retire from music in an interview with DW Africa.
Diamond argued that getting married now would prevent him from making quality songs and would ultimately ruin his career.
“…you know, I still wanna give them more music. I still wanna give them more good music,” the singer said.
He claimed to know musicians who slowed down after getting married.
“That’s what I have seen. From all of my friends. That’s why I feel like, let me give you guys the good music. The time I’m about to retire I will get married,” Diamond added.
