Is an intimate like relationship possible after divorce – especially when the husband is in a second marriage and have children from another women?
December 28, 2020
Neway Debebe is among giant Ethiopian Musicians. He is a scriptwriter and composer for his songs.
At some point, he was criticized for allegedly being an opportunist with Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) administration.
His appearance with the talk show host Seifu Fantahun this week revealed the story of his marriage which has gone viral and got the public talking.
As in the west, it is becoming customary to discuss the personal affairs of celebrities.
The good thing about Neway’s latest story is that it is seen in a positive light. He returned to Ethiopia after living in the United States for twenty years. His wife from whom he has two children (all grown up) remained in the United States. And claimed that he waited for her for ten years before entering to a second marriage with another woman.
His first wife, Aida Hassen still lives in the United States, appeared on Seifu Fantahun show with him. She was very strict when it comes to revealing if she is currently in a relationship. “I will skip that,” she told the host.
However, she revealed that she is very close not only to her former husband, Neway Debebe, but also to his new wife. “She [the new wife]calls her enate.” It means my mother. Aida regularly calls Neway Debebe’s new wife.
What is special about the story is that although they are divorced, they are still intimate. The fondness about one another is visible. A video of the two that was produced before ten years ago is released– and that too has gone viral. The song is entitled “Amen” – he praised God for giving him a woman like her.
