Comedian Eric Omondi wants a DNA test done on Jacque Maribe's son for him to fully support him.

Speaking to Word Is, Eric said he has been ready for a DNA test for seven years.

"I am ready even today, I will foot the expense at any hospital," he said, adding that the TV personality should stop tarnishing his brand.

"I have built this brand for 14 years and for an intelligent woman like her to wake up and stand branding me names makes me very angry."

Eric added, "Someone should advise her to stop exposing this child, he will be ridiculed. Why didn't she just call me and ask about the post that triggered her to call me a deadbeat?

"I am willing to take the test and even if it comes out negative, I will still take care of that child. He is very innocent."

In a detailed post on Tuesday, Eric said he has begged Maribe for seven years for a DNA test to ascertain if he is the biological father to their son, but she refused.

"Roughly four months after the baby was born, Jacque called me and asked me if I would help or be part of the baby's life. I asked her for a DNA test so I could comfortably be part of the baby's life and support fully," he said.

"She got very offended and refused my request. For seven years I have begged Jacque to allow us to have a DNA test and she has continually refused! I don't mind supporting the child but if you want me to be fully present and supportive, if you want me to be a father. Then we have to do the right thing!" he wrote in part.

During our interview, Eric said the reason he decided to come is since the allegations are affecting his brand.

"Right now, I can't post anything on my page since the comments are all very negative," he said.

"People are accusing me of something they are not sure yet I have been helping Jacque. It feels bad. Some accusations can make you lose your jobs and start begging on social media."

Eric's message to Jacque is that she should not let emotions control her.

"If you attack me, I will attack your village. Women are protected by the society. I had to come out and say the truth. We have our issues but she should not bring them to the public."

Word Is reached out to Jacque Maribe who did not respond to our calls.
