Bidco sponsors Eric Omondi’s ‘Untamed’ for Sh500k

Consumer goods manufacture Bidco Africa has sponsored comedian Eric Omondi to a tune of Sh500,000 for his upcoming stand-up comedy show.

The show, to be held on Sunday at KICC, is part of the comedian’s Untamed series – a one man, stand-up comedy show. This will be the tenth episode.

Many fans contend that the comedian got a raw deal in the sponsorship, in view of his stature in the local entertainment scene.

According to the deal, as part of the sh500,000 sponsorship, fans who will attend the event stand a chance of winning Golden Fry gift hampers.


“We love Eric Omondi, we love his unique and fun approach to comedy and content creation because he focuses on making his fans happy which is totally in line with our happy healthy living philosophy,” said Chris Diaz, Bidco Africa Group Sales and Marketing Director.

The comedian thanked the company for the support saying; “I am so glad a company I already admire has stepped forward to support me. Not everyone understands what I am doing. But Bidco is a company of vision and guts. I could not be more thrilled to have them as our sponsor.”

Eric Omondi is one of Kenya’s biggest comedians. He recently teamed up with South African female comedian and radio personality Tumi Morake to launch ‘The Safari Comedy Show‘ series.

It is a series of short, one-minute scripted skits in which real wild animals will be dubbed by local African talents. It is based on the concept of “if animals could talk what would they say?”

The series is sponsored by Boomerang, a company owned by Turner International.
