Comedian Eric Omondi has struck a lucrative deal with an American company as a brand ambassador and also official host of their events.
Talk to UKTN.co.ke On Friday April 30, Omondi said he would be the face of GSM Retail Inc for the Kenya-based branch.
“To start off, I will be hosting their event tomorrow, Saturday May 1st, at the Karen Hub where they will be launching another Baby Shop at the Hub.
He said he was fortunate enough to continue hoisting the Kenyan flag and was proof that individuals can work in multiple sectors.

On Labor Day, he will host Tanzania’s High Commissioner to Kenya, John Simbachawene, at the event. Simbachawene will launch the new Karen store.
“Come and be proud of one of your own. Let’s support each other. We’ll give free gifts and it’s going to be one of my proudest moments,” Omondi added.
The self-proclaimed comedian president of comedy in Africa is not only a brand ambassador, but also a content creator and host.
Omondi, who started on Churchill Show, raised the bar and performed in several international events.
The actor also uses his influence on social networks as a source of income. In July 2020, he noted that the impact of Covid-19 had accelerated the transformation of the industry by relying heavily on digital media.
He advised comedians to invest and venture into quality content that can be used by brands for marketing purposes.
“Businesses are creating huge marketing budgets for creating content that comedians should tap into,” he said.
