Hailemichael Getnet, sometimes known as H. Haile Roots’ typical upbringing was insufficient to prepare him for what lay ahead. Born on September 25, 1982, he never considered becoming a musician while attending Selassie Cathedral School for his elementary education and Minilik II Secondary School for his high school education. He had aspirations to become a famous football player or painter as a child in Addis Abeba, but he never saw himself as a musician. Haile Roots recalls the precise moment when he first became obsessed with music and had the unquenchable desire to become a singer. He went to a reggae performance in 1993 that was put on by the late DJ Z. From that point forward, Haile Roots developed an obsession with reggae music.
With his first collaboration with Abera Mola and Tigist Bekele, he entered the music business. After releasing his album “Chiggae” in the Ethiopian market in late 2011, Haile Roots quickly rose to fame due to his exceptional singing talent and unwavering love of music.
The 13-track album includes his top singles “Bado neber,” “Chiggae,” and “Netsuhe Quanquayen.” His debut CD, which has won him many fans from all across Ethiopia, includes joint compositions with Lucciano and Teddy Afro, a renowned musician from that country.
