  1. One of the best Artist in Ethiopia. I love his Songs, specially ” selina “. The Text of the song ” selina” is to 100% the same Story with me, that is why i love the song.
    It is a sad news to hear that he is now dead. R.I.P. You will never be forgotten.

  2. It’s very sad to know that he walked into a clinic for minor illness and ended up dead. Tonsillitis injection is not supposed to be deadly under normal circumstances.
    Health care providers in Ethiopia need to be aware of the patients medical history before giving any treatment.
    I still don’t understand why he was buried without proper explanation for his death.

  3. nefs Yimar …le lijochum Tsinatun yistachew… He will be remembered for a long time by all the people of Ethiopia
