The official video of Teddy Afro's new single "Tikur Se"("Black Person" in Amaharic). This video is based on the historical Battle of Adwa (March 1, 1896) in which Ethiopian forces, under the leadership of Emperor Menelik II and Empress Taytu Betul, defeated the invading Italian army and secured Ethiopian sovereignty.
The Amharic phrase at the end of the video means: "In order to define yourself now, you have to look at your past." Stir up the Ethiopian pride, also seems to wish for a peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea. No wonder people were playing this song everywhere when I was in Ethiopia. Big Up Teddy Afro♪
