By Sylvania Ambani September 30th, 2022 2 min read

After a month of peaceful coexistence comedian, Eric Omondi and Sauti Sol lead singer Bien Baraza are back at back at it, hurling unpleasant words at each other. Eric launched the first attack on Bien calling him a two-faced liar.

The comedian claims Bien has been fighting him whenever he tries to speak about the industry.

“So Apple Music released the top 100 songs in Kenya and only two are Kenyan and both belong to this guy! Let me explain to you why Bien is the only Kenyan on this list. He understands showbiz and he knows what the people want but he doesn’t want others to get to where he is and that’s why he fights my course so bitterly and passionately. Enyewe witchcraft manifests in different forms,” Eric said.

“While Bien disagrees with me, he knows am right and is implementing the same things he is disagreeing with. Kama hio sio uchawi na roho chafu then I don’t know what is. Bien is doing the right thing but he doesn’t want others to do the same ndio ikue tu ni yeye. I told you Bien ni wale watu usoma usiku kama kila mtu amelala lakini mkiamka anawaambia ‘Twendeni tucheze football’. Bien is a book we must all study to fully understand ingenuity, hardwork and witchcraft,” he said.

Bien on his part responded by calling Eric an idiot, explaining that most of the artistes on the list provided by iTunes don’t depend on gimmicks to sell their music. He cited the example of fellow singer Willy Paul who has been trending for ‘pretending’ to date singer Jovial to sell their new song.

“You’re an idiot. Honestly, what are you even saying? 95% of the artistes on that list are not doing gimmicks. They’re simply putting out songs. Show me a gimmick in my life. I have only always made music. You’ve pushed this agenda for too long. Willy Paul doesn’t have to date all those women he has worked with. Jovial did not have to date Mario. Hizo gimmicks zinachosha,” Bien said.

“Policy policy policy! Nigeria the other day said no foreign models in their adverts. Those are the things that make them prosper! When systems are made right everybody wins. Stop embarrassing yourself by looking for likes in the name of showbiz!” he explained.
