Eric Omondi: Beef? What beef? Khaligraph is my BFF
Celebrated comedian Eric Omondi has confessed that his much publicized ‘beef’ with rapper Khaligraph Jones was all a big joke.
The rib cracker and the hard hitting lyrical rapper have been throwing shade at each other whose genesis many of their fans couldn’t figure out.
Turns out there was no beef at all. As a matter of fact, the two celebrities were getting paid handsomely to promote a new social media App ‘Olla’ through the fake beef which caught the whole Kenyan showbiz by surprise.
The ‘beef’ started when an unknown person claimed to be a close associate of Eric leaked screenshots of a nasty exchange between the two artistes on the Olla App.
In the screenshots, the comedian claimed that the rapper’s new maroon Range Rover belonged to a sugar mummy who bank is rolling him.
Khaligraph hit back with a diss track addressing Eric on his Instagram that duped hundred of their fans into believing that the beef was real.
BEST OF FRIENDS
However, every time the two celebs threw barbs at each other on various social sites, they would close their remarks with hashtag ‘#OllaAtMe’
The two suddenly went quiet when their drill seemed to have been discovered.
“Khalipgraph and I are the best of friends, we are cool. Infact we’ve never had a beef at all. The whole thing was just a promotion for some brand,” Eric revealed.
Its worth remembering that this not the first time Eric has pulled such a prank on Kenyans just to promote a brand.
Last year he pulled a similar stunt that made his fans believe that he and his girlfriend Shantel had broken up in public after after she “discovered that he was cheating on her”.
It later turned out that the two were only trying to publicize the Ocharge App which Eric had been contracted to market.
