He is an artist. For the last dozen years he has been a strong advocate of freedom, democracy and national unity of Ethiopia. He is a father of two beautiful children and happily married. Since he started his life in exile in the United States, he has been at the forefront in being voice for the voiceless.

Because he has been making his strong opposition towards the anti-Ethiopia policies of the Zenawi regime, his albums could not be sold in Ethiopia.

It would have been financially and professionally beneficial for him to be silent or even align himself with those in power in Addis Ababa. However instead of self interest he chose to stand by the side of Justice and gave priority to Ethiopia’s long term interest.

He has been a friend of those who were imprisoned illegally and unjustly. He has been consistent and acting with full determination when it comes to Ethiopia. He has been always there are ready when Ethiopia and his people are calling for him. His name is Shambel Belayneh.

As we are entering the New Year, Abugida would like to nominate Shambel Belayneh as the person of the year.

We say “Thank You and May God bless you for all you have done”.
