Comedian Eric Omondi’s fiancée Chantal Grazioli has revealed the identity of the person who played matchmaker when she first met the celebrated entertainer.

Surprisingly, that person happens to be none other than her mother.

In an Instagram post Chantal narrates how they first met at Kasarani stadium after her mother came to the rescue of her nervous daughter to ask Eric for a picture of the two.

Chantal gushes at how she was a big fan of Eric, the only Kenyan celebrity she knew at the time.

“I don’t know if you remember this but this was the first picture we took together at Kasarani Stadium you were the only Kenyan celebrity I knew I was a big fan, and I wanted a picture but I was too nervous to ask you (my hands says it all) so my mom did it for me I remember you were a little tipsy I was rained on my hair and make-up was ruined to get there. The rest is history”

The couple started dating back in 2015 and their romance eventually saw Ms Grazioli relocating to Kenya in September to be near her Kenyan lover.

Eric then proposed to her girlfriend in February 2016 while on a Valentine’s Day getaway.
