Ethiopia’s Singer, Teddy Afro, Begs For Peace

Ethiopian songwriter and singer, Tewodros Kassahun, professionally known as Teddy Afro, has urged the government to prevent “inhumane acts of violence against civilians”.

Ethnic-related unrest continues to be a challenge for the government. Only last week at least 31 civilians were killed by unknown militants in southern Ethiopia.

“I would like to strongly urge the government to take precautionary measures against such attacks,” Teddy wrote in a Facebook post.

Teddy enjoys an almost cult-like following in Ethiopia.

He is no stranger to controversy though. He raised the ire of the authorities in 2005 when he released an album that was seen as critical of the authorities in the wake of disputed elections.
