Teddy Afro is an Ethiopian singer-songwriter who was born on July 14, 1976. His real name is Tewodros Kassahun Germamo. Teddy, who is renowned for his revolutionary lyrics and political opposition attitude, is regarded as one of the most important Ethiopian artists of all time. Teddy has impacted many new performers and had a big cultural impact on Ethiopian music. Kassahun Germamo, a singer and lyricist, and Tilaye Arage, a dancer, welcomed Tewodros Kassahun Germamo into the world on July 14, 1976 in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia. Tewodros is an Amhara ethnicity person. Although he was active in the entertainment industry, his parents discouraged him from pursuing a career in music. Teddy Afro made his musical debut in 2001 with the release of the album Abugida, quickly making a name for himself in his native country. Yastesereyal, his sophomore album, was released in 2005 and included reggae, traditional Ethiopian music, and pop songs. Its divisive title single, which denounced corruption in the nation’s government, became a big hit. The song “Hab Dahlak” is about how the divorce of marriages caused Ethiopia and Eritrea to split apart. Later, four of the album’s songs were taken off the broadcast, but “Yastesereyal’s” popularity and sales remained divisive.
