    Teddy Afro as Michel Jackson?? You must be joking. Its more like Bob Marley.

  5. 5 DJ Mamush Kasi Dec 26th, 2009 at 12:08 pm

    Teddy is da man! He is the MJ of Ethiopia, Bob Marley of Ethiopia and some. Heck he is also the Elvis Presley of Ethiopia. If there is some body big out there, then he is it for Ethiopia. Go, Teddy! Go, Teddy! Go, Teddy! Clap everybody!!!

    I am out, Love you!

    I was one of the few people who attended Teddy Afro’s show on New Year’s Day in Washington, DC. Lack of space had sent many people back home. I hope those who missed Teddy would have a chance to see him again. I have heard there were people who cried because they were turned back. The organizing and marketing of the show has had serious problems. Teddy’s shows deserve to be organized in bigger convention centers and arenas next time around.

    I was embarrassed to be an Ethiopian at this concert.

    The abesha guys were either, pushing, harassing or bugging women all over the arena.

    It was a disaster and a waste of $50. Habesha women will never enjoy these shows unless, or men learn to respect women, and also learn to handle their alcohol. Until, then I’ll be listening to Teddy from the safety and comfort of my own home.

  22. 22 Lawgaw Jan 4th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    It was the best concert! i really had a great time except waiting for a taxi for an hour.

  23. 23 wagaye Jan 11th, 2010 at 6:07 am

    That was very very funny. My stomach is hurting from laughing so shard. Thanks for sharing. :-) :-) :-)

    Song Tittle : Two Loves Teddy Afro…. Written by Daniel Mann.

    Mann Lowe wrote Teddy Bear maybe Elvis was thinking it was meant for Teddy Afto. Teddy Afro rhythm is like Frank Signature’s it doesn’t skip a beat. The King and the Boss, would say Teddy Afro has Roy Orbision’s beat. Muhammad Ali, would throw a Afro Ethiopian Eskesta punch, that would knock a grown man to his feet. You never new what style was singing a Billy Joel Song, Joel Told Daniel Mann that he wrote all his own music, just like Teddy Afro. The Japanese loved Billy Joel Elton John and the Beetles, wait to they hear Teddy Afro. Elvis did the Elvis Ethiopian Eskesta to Jail House Rock, I think Elvis was thinking about Yastereryal , one star died, another was born through Elvis and Afro. Bob Marley wrote a song called love, Afro wrote a song called Abugida , like the love of growing up like your ABC. Johnny Walkelin wrote a song about Muhammad Ali The Black superman, who flow over Adis Abbea doing the Superman Ali Eskesta Teddy Afro wrote a song about Haile Gebreselassie Who did the world fastest man Eskesta run of all time, Ali would say the greatest is Teddy Afro, New Jersey has Bruce Springsteen E Street Band, The Capital Africa Adis Ababa has Teddy Afro And the Abugida, leaving you with this Jewish Tomer Benvenisti quote, nobody is better than Teddy Afro.
    Song : Two Loves Teddy Afro.
