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”.

    I am delighted by your nomination. Shambel’s determination and the courage he showed us is exemplary. His commitment to the cause of Mother Ethiopia is sincer. When many of his artists choice self enrichment, he prefered to be the voice of the voiceless and be poor. He is the monument of patriotism.
    Thank you ABUGIDA for your brilliant search and find some one who has done a lot for the cause of our beloved country.
    Congragulation Shambel for well deserved nomination of person of the year. May God Bless you and the rest of your family.

    Shambel is a man of distinguished courage or ability and
    admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. It’s easy to see that whatever metaphysical, spiritual, creative or political motivations
    he had, this is without a doubt the most passionate, heaviest hero of this generation.
    Speaking only for myself – if I had known beforehand, and were given sufficient time – I believe I could have made a much stronger
    case for Shamble Belayneh. I coul’d have prepared for him collection of documents.
    He is not only an artist but as a person, in the opinion of ethiopians, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal for democracy: He was a local hero when we needed a leadership.

    Shambel deserves to be person of the year .You did a right choice the Abugidas by not picking up none from among phoney and charlatant politicians as we have witnessed when retreated while woyane landed two simple punches on their face.
