Just three days after Ethiopia’s most popular singer Teddy Afro released his single music in which he subtly and, sharply, criticized Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration (without naming a name of course), Abel Mulugeta has released a single, on Saturday. Kedar Kumo – could translate to “bystander.”
It is unclear as to how long he has been working on his single. It does, however, sound like it is a critic of Teddy Afro’s latest, and one of the most popular song in the history of Ethiopian Music, single – Na’em.
If confirmed, it may indicate that Ethiopian Music is moving in the direction of being a platform for political cleavage in the country.
Due to the enormity of support to Teddy Afro’s latest work, which flogged the prime minister’s obsession with “green legacy” event at a time when Ethiopians are bleeding due to the latest carnage in Wollega, it is not impossible that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed could supported a work like this.
