Multiple sources have this morning confirmed that indeed Erick Omondi’s younger brother and comedian, Fred Omondi, is no more. According to information shared by the sources, Fred Omondi, passed on while undergoing treatment in a Nairobi Hospital.

According to the police, a bodaboda carrying Fred Omondi was on the wrong side of the road when it collided with a Foward Sacco Matatu. The Matatu was the Nairobi CBD heading to Kayole near the Consolidated bank.

Other tangible reports were that he was reportedly involved in an accident along Kangundo Road and his body was taken to Mama Lucy Hospital morgue. His fellow industry colleagues, including Terrence Creative, have confirmed. He was set to host an event at BVB Lounge in Meru this weekend.

Condolences From Colleagues

“TODAY AT 6 AM I’VE RECEIVED THE SADDEST CALL EVER ?? Inauma saana…… Fred, I thank God for the time He gave us together. Bro, you’ve been part of my career and growth in the industry. You always treated me as a brother and hosted me when I had nowhere to go, gave me a stage, and paid me. Together we started club comedy shows.

I will always treasure the moment we shared the stage from Tribeka, Taj Mall, Hearts, I club, etc till we got to Churchill show and then hosted our first TV show together: Ktn Crazy Comedy. Together we suffered, together we learned and together we inspired, made people laugh, and created great memories.” Wrote his friend Terrence Creative.

Uniquely, Eric Omondi, Fred’s brother and a comedian mourned the former Churchill Show performer. The self-proclaimed President of Comedy in Africa posted Mbosso’s remix “Tamu” song they did together with Fred. In the song captioned with “Go well, brother”Fred and Eric are addressing political challenges in the society.

Kenya’s entertainment scene has been in a somber mood this week as this comes only hours after the burial of reggae MCA Njambi Koikai. Njambi also died while also receiving treatment, at a Nairobi Hospital. She succumbed to endometriosis and was laid to rest on June 14th.
