I completely agree with him and I have sent him a personal apology. The intention has always been to entertain and not to offend and I'd like to apologize to anyone who was offended🙏🙏🙏The whole idea behind #WifeMaterial is to bring East Africa and Africa together through Entertainment...The Vision is to take over Africa and the Dream is to lift the East African and Kenyan flags to the World and that requires a rigorous and vigorous creative process.
In order to compete Internationally, we need to put our best feet forward. The creative process can be long and tedious and whenever a new idea is born it comes with a lot of teething problems. WE PROMISE TO BE BETTER AND DO BETTER🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🇹🇿🇰🇪🇺🇬SIGNEDPRESIDENT OF ENTERTAINMENT AFRICA." Eric shared
