Singer/song writer Hamelmal Abate,who is born & raised in #Harar, broke down in tears while talking about recent violence in eastern #Ethiopia.
Hamelmal, who is participating in the upcoming All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA), dedicated her AFRIMA entry song “Harar” to the victims of the recent violence in Ethio-Somali and Oromia regions which resulted in the death of several dozens and displacement of hundreds of thousands of people.
“For me, it is personal; it is personal for you as well,” she says, referring the male host at EBS TV, who also happens to be from Harar.
But most importantly, artist Abate says “it is personal for all of us.” She says she doesn’t really know th reason for the violence.
She said it was a violence truly unbecoming of the community she was raised in, especially since it’s not inflicted by a threat from outside.
“Whether or not I win, I want to dedicate this song for the people; I will dedicate it for them even more so if I win, because they raised me.”
