On his Instagram account, Eric Omondi has clearly stated that he is surprised that Ruger is performing in the interior part of Kenya which is Meru, and went on to say that "they" which refers to Nigerian musicians have "conquered entirely" the Kenyan music industry, a statement that was received with mixed feelings by fans.
