Controversial comedian Eric Omondi has reacted to Dr Ezekiel Mutua’s appointment as the new CEO of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK). 

During his tenure as the Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) boss, Mutua and Eric engaged in a war of words over content created and distributed by the comic. 

In one instance, Mutua got the comedian arrested after introducing his controversial reality show, Wife Material. 

Following his sacking from KFCB, Eric celebrated the development claiming that he played a huge role in Mutua’s exit from the films regulatory body. 

“I said before September and you thought it was a joke. you cannot bite the hand that feeds you. We are your employers. I told you your only option was to apologise to the entertainment industry for your unfortunate remarks but I guess it’s too late,” Eric said.

“This country we make two steps ahead and 10 backwards. The blade is the same and if you bring harshness we will go the Will Smith way,” Eric wrote. 

In his message following the appointment, Mutua expressed gratitude for rejoining the creative industry promising to defend the rights of musicians. 

“I have received with profound gratitude my appointment to the position of Chief Executive Officer of the Music Copyright Society of Kenya (MCSK)

“Happy to rejoin the creative industry, this time not as a regulator, but as a promoter and defender of the rights of musicians,” he wrote.
