Born on July 14, 1976, Teddy Afro is an Ethiopian singer-songwriter. Tewodros Kassahun Germamo is his true name. Teddy is regarded as one of the greatest Ethiopian musicians of all time because of his revolutionary songs and political opposition outlook. Teddy has a significant cultural impact on Ethiopian music as well as many new performers. Tewodros Kassahun Germamo was born in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, on July 14, 1976, to singer and lyricist Kassahun Germamo and dancer Tilaye Arage. Tewodros is a member of the Amhara ethnic group. Despite his involvement in the entertainment sector, his parents forbade him from pursuing a career in music. Teddy Afro made his musical debut in 2001 with the release of the CD Abugida, and he immediately established a reputation in his homeland. His second album, Yastesereyal, was released in 2005 and featured reggae, folk music from Ethiopia, and pop tunes. Its contentious title song, which criticized the nation’s government’s corruption, became a great hit. Ethiopia and Eritrea split apart as a result of divorced marriages, as described in the song “Hab Dahlak.” The popularity and sales of “Yastesereyal” divided many even after four of the album’s songs were later removed from the broadcast.
