• Eric tried a taxi business and a studio and they both failed
Comedian Eric Omondi says high demands from artistes led to him closing his music studio.
Eric was speaking at the launch of his new club in town, identified as Maxy's.
"I tried a taxi business but it failed. I also opened a record label and it failed because working with other artistes is hard," he said.
Eric, however, said he is determined to keep trying as he does not want to die poor.
He said he has mastered the art of saving small.
"There is a culture of celebrities getting broke after and some end up in the rehabs," he said.
"I want to kill that culture of becoming a hit, then you are finished and you start begging. And that is why we are here to launch this business."
Eric explained that most celebrities live for the moment.
"I will say it here that most artistes do not invest or save their money. They live in the moments when their star is shining and the spotlight on them, and they forget to save."
He asked his fans to support his new business.
"I am the big brother to some of these artistes. Make sure you save your money. God has blessed you with that talent and fame. We finish that culture of artistes begging in their sunset days."
Eric said he will be hosting different artistes every Tuesday for a talent night at the club, adding that he will not give up trying.
"This is not clout, you will see it for the rest of my life and I will even expand the business in other places like Mombasa and other places."
