Comedian Eric Omondi has told comedians to appreciate Churchill for the platform he gave them.

Eric said Churchill did not need the services of comedians, but they needed him to make ends meet.

"Churchill has never called anyone to his show. He was doing his show and we went to ask him for a chance. He gives you a chance to be famous, whatever you do with that is up to you," Eric said.

He criticised fellow comedians for not going out of their way. He is one of the products of Churchill's mentorship and has made the most out of it.

"No comedian can talk bad about Churchill, I will stop them. Because the biggest project from Churchill is Eric Omondi," he said.

"He has never paid me, I am supposed to pay him for the platform he gave me to be famous and get money. Without him, I couldn’t be here."

He then suggested Kenyan comedians should appreciate Churchill by building him a house even if he has his means.

"All comedians need to come together, contribute money to build him a house."

However, Eric expressed fear that several creatives won't see the need of appreciating him since they think he is the reason for their misfortunes.

"Some of them say Churchill messed them up. How? Churchill doesn't owe anyone anything."
