Stop the debauchery and rediscover your calling- Eric Omondi blasts Gospel musicians
- The trending video by Eric Omondi has sparked fervent debate on social media. While some say he is being judgemental, others are hailing his message as God sent.
- Eric Omondi says the former A-list singers have set a benchmark for debauchery and are now premium carriers of sexually transmitted diseases.
'Talanta 47' show host Eric Omondi has released an emotive video calling on local gospel artistes to stop debauchery and go back to church Ministry.
In a video released on Sunday Feb. 5, Omondi bemoans the deterioration of the local gospel music industry with some artistes 'backsliding to pop music' while others engage in wanton sex. He also decries the dearth of productivity and the death of the once-popular Groove Awards.
"The gospel music industry was the identity of Kenyan music," says Omondi, 'President of Comedy in Africa'. "They have all fallen."
Omondi mentions a list of hitherto A-list gospel musicians who have meandered into the ways of the world, shepherds who've forgotten their flock out in the meadows.
"The amount of sex that gospel musicians are having in Umoja...unaenda around ukitafuta watoto wa university," he says, naming some of the artistes. [We cannot name the artistes as its perilously closer to slander]..."We have lost our touch with God and the church has let down Kenyans."
He also laments over another singer who now runs an employment agency for young girls seeking jobs in the Middle East. Resplendent in a pinstripe jacket, a white shirt and a neck chain thick enough to moor a small boat, Eric Omondi asserts the gospel musicians who have abandoned their initial calling will not find success elsewhere.
"I want to give you a message from God...whatever you do, whatever you touch haitaenda anywhere until you come back to your initial calling."
The trending video by Eric Omondi has sparked fervent debate on social media. While some say he is being judgemental, others are hailing his message as God sent.
"I've listened to omondi and I have remembered the the story of Balam in the bible. God used a donkey to speak to Balam and warn him. This is not the Omondi we know who is speaking. Anyone in the realm of spirit would understand this. God can use anyone to pass his message across. Nyinyi endeleeni kuona kama ni yule omondi mnajua anawika," says Wanja Mwaura, a philanthropist.
"This is not Eric Omondi speaking! The Lord has decided to use this earthly vessel just like the days of Balam and the donkey to save the nation of Israel. May the Lord bless him," says Man Nyari (Njuguna Gicheha), a radio presenter and Kikuyu gospel singer.
