Teddy Afro’s New Oromo-Reggae Fusion Music: “Anna Nyaatu Lene Yaregew”

Posted: Caamsaa/May 2, 2017 · Finfinne Tribune | Gadaa.com | Comments (14)

Editor’s Note: Almost all known Ethiopian Amharic singers include some version of Afan-Oromo music in their music-album to increase the number of audience for their music. Take Tilahun Gessesse, Bizunesh Bekele, Kuku Sebsebe, Hamelmal Abate and others, including Teddy Afro. Music is more closer to the society to speak about what the society wants. We do hope that, one of these days, that the Ethiopian government’s federal language policy also changes to include Afan Oromo as a second working language in the country. If a recording artist makes the effort to include Afan-Oromo in their album to increase the number of audience, it’s not clear why the federal government refuses to accept Afan Oromo as an important language in Ethiopia – deserving the status of a federal working language.

We’re FOR recognizing Afan-Oromo as the second federal working language in Ethiopia; are you? Love wins!

    Given his divisive and abusive past, I will never listen to or promote Teddy Afro’s music, unlike this editor, regardless of which language he uses to sell his product!
    As for Afaan Oromo being “second” federal language, only Oromos will decide what language they speak in their country once Finfinne is freed from TPLF occupation.

    Why is it news if he puts a few words of Oromo Language in his song? Do You think Amharas will listen to our music if an Oromo artist sing few words Amhara language in an Oromo album? Of course not. They hate us they hate our language our songs. Get it to your head. Amhara lovers are our biggest problems in our quest to freedom. True Oromos don’t love neftenya!!!!

    If Aran Oromo becomes second national language it is plus.Languages are not about hate and love.They go beyond that.They are means of communications.It is determined at market place.If some one want to buy a product that an Oromo person carrys to know the price there must be understanding between the two.It brings also trust between the Amharas and the Oromos that will create system of government that will be just for all.

    I think this music has something related with Irrecha massacre!

    This song is a love story that claims disappearances that is happening on daily basis.
    However, given the recent tragedy in BISHOFTU – IRRECHA, many other places and the pain of learning disappearances of loved ones is well reflected in his song.

    With all due respect it is a genius work to pay tribute to all killed extrajudicially in Ethiopia.

    The IRRECHA massacre being the recent one and watched by the world as it was happening. A very sad day, not only for OROMOS but for peace loving people of the region and the world.

    TERROR IS A CULTURAL TRAIT BY SUCCESSIVE ETHIOPIAN RULERS IN PARTICULAR AGAINST OROMO MAJORITY.

    WE HAVE THE DUTY TO STOP IT ONCE FOR ALL.
