The Kenyan popular comedian, Eric Omondi, has assured Kenyans that Season three of his #WifeMaterial show will be premiered in less than a month. The controversial media personality has been on record for both good and wrong reasons. On the good side, Eric is loved by many for his humorous nature coupled with an outstanding personality. He is arguably one of the most successful African comedians so to speak. But early this year, Eric found himself in a hot soup after his first and second season Wife Material Challenge attracted legal actions against him. The reality show was suspended by the Kenya Film Board over the allegations of distributing harmful contents in violation of The Film and Stage Act Cap. The KFB issued its suspension statement shortly after Erik’s arrest on the 11th of March 2021.
Despite the “hurdles,” Eric has expressed confidence that Season 3 will be better. On a Facebook post he made on June 2, Eric stated that he is actually looking for a wife and that he has refocused the show’s purpose due to which he is now well set to premier the final season. Unlike the former seasons, stated the comedian, Season 3 will feature contestants from Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Nigeria.
As expected, the post was met with differing views. For some of Eric’s funs, the WifeMaterial challenge is an unnecessary joke that will only lead the comedian to future regrets.
