askotu asin jira – oromo song
Askotu is a timeless Oromigna song. If you are in your late thirties or early forties, you probably heard it while tuning to Ethiopian Radio weekend editions.
Originally the song belongs to Abitew Kebede and was released first well over three decades ago.
Nigusu Tamrat played the song in a new form some eight or so years ago. It is noted that the video below, which is on YouTube, is not an official video but still beautiful.
