The reality show quickly gained popularity with audiences when it debuted in December 2020. It has become by far the most watched YouTube content too- with the final wedding episode trending on number 1 for five days and counting- logging an impressive 500,000 views.

For his reality show, Eric had managed to pick 9 of the hottest eligible bachelorettes in the country and stick them all into one house to fight it out for his heart.

Finally, it was Carol Kamweru of the all-girl music group Band Beca who was picked as the winner and Mrs. Omondi to be. The pair even 'wedded' in a private ceremony which was crashed by another angry contestant, Shakilla.

But finally yesterday (January 11), Eric revealed that Wife Material was a scripted drama and that none of the events were real. He admits that the reality show was only the first in a list of productions he has lined up on his brand new studios.

"We did this show to give you just a small taste of what BIG TYME ENTERTAINMENT and ERIC OMONDI STUDIOS has in store for you."

And now, fans of Eric Omondi are praising the comedian for raising the bar for local entertainment. More specifically, for helping promote young talent and giving them a chance to make successful careers.

Eric shared this highly complimentary message from a fan on his Instagram stories this morning.

"Hey Erico, Wow! Congratulations on waking the "sleeping giant" our entertainment industry! I pray you go far with your studio and that you bring something new that can take our country places... We have talent but no audience and enough exposure.

"Thank you for giving those girls a platform to showcase their natural talents and thank you so much especially for changing the game."

This comes only a day after Eric was forced to defend himself from accusations by one of the former Wife Material contestants Shila, who disclosed to gossip blogger Edgar Obare that Eric used her on the show but did not pay the girls.

"Wife Material has managed to launch the careers of [Shakilla, Shazzy and Mwikali] and brought forth the re birth of @bandbeca... and introduced us to 9 Amazingly beautiful Women with soo much potential," said Eric.
