The entertainment industry is coming to terms with the sudden demise of Fred Omondi, brother to Eric Omondi, who died after an accident along Kangundo Road early Saturday morning.

Daniel Ndambuki aka Churchill, who worked closely with the deceased, assured Eric of his support during this difficult period, saying it was sad to lose such a talented soul.

“Rest easy Freddy. Very sad. That driver who hit you and ran. I hope he/she will find it in their heart to come and apologize and condole with the family. Sio poa.Pole kaka Eric Omondi. We together in this,” he wrote.

Fred was one of the standout acts on Churchill Show some years back and captivated audiences with his rib-cracking humour.

At times, he would devise well-thought-out rhymes that told a story through music and would deliver the punch right at the end.

Friends and family have described him as a kind and humble man who always wanted the best for everyone.

Content creator Terrence Creative, who worked with Fred as they started in comedy, said he was heartbroken when he was informed of his demise, asking people to be kind to each other because life is fickle.

He lauded Fred’s impact on his life, recalling the days they struggled to make ends meet but still soldiered on

“Fred, I thank God for the time He gave us together bro, you’ve been part of my career and growth in the industry, you always treated me as a brother and hosted me when I had nowhere to go, gave me a stage and paid me, together we started club comedy shows.

“I will always treasure the moment we shared the stage together from Tribeka, Taj Mall, Hearts, I club etc till we got to Churchill show and then to hosting our first Tv show together: Ktn Crazy Comedy. Together we suffered, together we learned and together we inspired, made people laugh and created great memories,” wrote Terrence.

Content creator YY said seeing Fred at the morgue was heartbreaking and he never thought they would part this soon.

“If there is a comedian I have travelled with the most it's You Fred... I Never thought it would be this soon...Seeing your lifeless body at the morgue has to be one of the toughest closure....I Will cherish your memories brother...Go well and Rest in peace Fred,” he wrote.
