When Kenyan comedian, Eric Omondi started eating Italian cuisine and insisting to speak Swahili and English in an Italian accent, many people thought he was becoming mad. It turns out however, that he was rehearsing how he’d behave when he got Italian citizenship.
His dreams seem to have come true on Sunday when he proposed to his Italian fiancé, Chantal Grazioli and she said yes. He took to social media to express his ecstasy.
“She Said Yes,” Eric said with the franticness of one who’d just lost their virginity. Unbeknownst to his fiancé, Eric’s dreams of bragging to tribe mates and fellow Kenyans about eating Italian foods they could not pronounce are what had come true. For, according to social media posts from people who saw him after she’d said yes, the wide grin he wore wasn’t because he’d gotten a woman better than socialist Huddah Monroe and fashion stylist, Sylvia Njoki he’d been linked to. It was presumably, because he’d finally gotten a permanent ticket to a place with food that would change his body physique to something enviable, something the Kenyan Cuisine had clearly failed to do. We wish you success with your Italian endeavors Eric Omondi.
