After Chipukeezy revealed how he was forced to end his show on Ebru TV, many celebrities reacted to his story by faulting Ebru TV for marginalizing the youth. Chipukezy clearly stated that he was asked to drop his co-host Kartello on grounds that the young man was making the show look like a ghetto show.
Among the comedians who reacted to Chipukeezy’s sad story was Eric Omondi. In a long post on his social media timeline, Eric Omondi repeated the same story that Kartello told about the humiliation and harassment they went through while working at Ebru Tv with Chipukeezy.
I witnessed personally in awe as a watchman stopped Chipukeezy’s car at the gate and asked him to park outside because he was carrying “Vijana strange” ( Guests at the show). It is hightime Media Houses started treating Artists with due respect.
I can not count the number of times Chipukeezy called me to Cry, Lament and Complain about Mistreatments and Frustrations at Ebru??… .

However, he went ahead to encourage his friend Chipukeezy telling him that nothing can stop him when social media is taking over radio and TV.
TV, RADIO and NEWSPAPERS used to be the Main stream Media. They are not anymore!!! You can take this to the bank!!! Social Media is now the MAIN STREAM Media!!! TV and RADIO will remain to be the Traditional media and just that. I don’t remember the last time I watched TV, everything I watch including TV shows, I watch from YouTube, Facebook or Instagram.
I get my news from Twitter???? (Nimeskia Kris Darling Amewasha Moto mahali ????) The Chipukeezy show was the best thing that happened to Ebru TV…I have not been on TV for the past 7 years and I can assure you that am doing JUST FINE so @chipukeezy and @kartelo_official will be More than Okay!!!

Eric Omondi’s post evoked reactions from fans who came criticizing Ebru TV for trying to manipulate Chipukeezy after he made theTV famous. They promised to support Kartello and Chipukeezy on the next platform, where Chipukeezy show will be aired.
Most TVs care more about their image rather than the impact. Eburu TV should think out of the box and realized we knew it because of this show…let them sit and watch themselves anyway. We are out…we are of the impact
