Comedian Eric Omondi has announced his intention in venturing in the investment industry by purchasing his own club called Maxys.
Eric Omondi announced the plans to launch the club in 35 days via his social media channels.
“When I turned 40 on the 9th of March, I asked myself many questions because there has been a culture of artists doing so well in their prime but later turn to begging and we want to get rid of that culture,” he said.
Eric asked Kenyans to support him as he ventures in this new business and also urged artists who are on their peak to invest so that there isn’t a repeat of artists turning to Kenyans in their sunset years for support.
“I have been in the industry for 14 years and currently am the big brother and am urging artists that are doing well to have investments for themselves so that they do not turn to beggars after they leave the industry,” Eric said.
The comedian noted that he chose to settle for a club because as an entertainer, his small business acumen could work well in a club.
“I have tried so many other businesses which people don’t know about and I am not a very good businessman but a club is something I understand because in the last year alone I have been in over 80 clubs,” Eric stated.
“I have given those feeling like this is clout time and they will see it for themselves, this club will have my name embedded in it forever” he stated.
Omondi is not the first celebrity to venture in the club business, Bien of Sauti Sol recently launched his own bar and restaurant ‘The Manhattan’ located along Mombasa road in an event graced by the comedian, Eugene Mbugua, Makena Njeri & Chiki Kuruka among others.
