President of Comedy Africa Eric Omondi says Churchill has never paid him. Speaking to Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo, the funny man said he gets his money from adverts and other deals.
Churchill has on several occasions found himself on the receiving end, with netizens alleging that artistes endure mistreatment from Laugh Industry Management, resulting in depression that leads to their death.
Churchill has never called anyone to join the show. He always gives us a house to sell your craft,” he said.
“Churchill has never paid me any coin. For three seasons and I did not want the money, but by the time I was finishing the first season, I was already making millions. I got adverts and earned from that.”
Eric said after he bought his first car, some comedians said he was favoured by the show’s boss.
The comedian said the government had shown minimal efforts to nurture and support young talents.
“Let me ask you, most of you have performed at high school drama festival, primary schools to the national level, and it ends up in State House. Have you asked yourself what happens to those talents? That is how most of the dreams die.
