Eric Omondi’s four and a half-year-old relationship with his Italian girlfriend Chantal Grazioli could be over.

This is the new reality many of Omondi’s followers on Instagram are grappling with after he disclosed that they are taking different life paths.

In the lengthy post, Omondi wrote that he wishes Grazioli the best as she ventures into her new phase, with or without him, and reiterated that she changed his life.

“I met you when you were only 19...I have known you for 4 and a half years...Shared and created some of the best moments in life with you. You changed my life completely...As you move into your new phase in life with or without me I want to wish you all the best my love...The paths that brought us together are now facing different directions and as you move on in your path I wish you the best life has to offer,” he wrote.

He explained that they are both okay, having been friends before they were lovers.

“I pray to God Almighty that He may keep you. May He lead you. May He watch over you...I want to let you know that I will always be here for you anytime, every time. As you fly away my love may you glow, shine like the Angel that you are. I will miss you every moment...Every single moment. You are the best thing that happened to me!!! Na kwa wale wadau wadaku, Chantal and I are okay. We were friends long before we were lovers and our friendship stays for life.”

In line with the recent spike in crimes of passion, Omondi advised young men and women to take his relationship as an example and accept that things do not always work out.

“And to those young men and women who prefer to take each other’s lives at the end of a relationship, let this be a lesson to you all. You do not own a person and it doesn't always work out,” he said.
