Teddy Afro arrested

The young musical sensation of the time, Tewodros Kassahun a.k.a Teddy Afro was taken to Addis Ababa Central Prison Centre on Tuesday, April 16 after the Federal High Court Eighth Criminal Bench adjourned to rule over his appeal for right to bail on charges of murder. He is believed to be taken to Kaliti Prision centre. Teddy will stay there as the court is adjourned for Monday, April 21 to decide whether or not Tewodros be granted release on bail.

 

Many fans believe that Teddy is set up for the charge by the government that is supposed to resent Teddy’s public acceptance in his political reprimands by some of his songs

.

 

Editorial staffs of fortune, the English weakly, were in the same court to defend the changes pressed on them by Hayat Plc. and could relate the situation and Teddy’s reaction. Fortune’s website was updated on the day with the news of Teddy’s arrest.

  3. he really did swear tigreans and u can not deny that. so, the point is anyone who touch any tigrean citizen whenever the day is going to be but his/her death will be infront of tigreans.

    i swear to my god i dont want u to talk about tigray. if u want go and deal with government this is nothing to do with tigrean people they are ethiopian like u and they dont nothing about what is going on they are innocent. please dont blame the poeple.

  10. I love Teddy Afro- one may say I am his biggest fan- Nonetheless, I know very little about his recent arrest. Everyone I talked to seem to be convinced of his innocence as some claim the government set him up. This theory may seem logical as he has been known as somewhat of an outspoken artist; however when you take a step back and look at the situation, the theory falls short of reality . I believe that many are jumping to conclusion with little information- I myself have been guilty of this- Claiming the government set him up, I believe, is a statement that underestimates the power the suppressive government of Ethiopia- if they really wanted to get ride of him that badly they would have done it years ago- Furthermore, the statement also overestimate Teddy Afro’s importance- for lack of better words- I think the government has bigger fish to fry ,like exploiting the nation to be bothered by Teddy. This is just my opinion y’all I would really appreciate more information about the case though

  11. Good to have this window.

    I am asking those who are behind Teddy to do something in updating his official website to provide us every bits of information about our beloved brother.

    If there is any possibility please forward my good wish to Teddy and say that the heart of millions of Ethiopians is also arrested and found in Kaliti. This I hope will be your strength to pray to your Gog. We are also praying all the day for you and looking for free release.

    Let God be with all of us.

  36. I love Tedy myself, but his innocence can not be based on his talent. Talent has nothing to do with this allegation.
    If he kills a person, then he should pay for it regardless of his celebrity status. How do you fell if the person who got killed is your family member? Will you excuse him just because he is outstanding musician? I didn’t think so.

    The problem with us Ethiopians is we are too emotional people.
    Once again he might be innocence, was accused on wrong doing like many Ethiopians in prison, we will find out soon. And I wish him all the best and I am deeply sorry of what happen.

    This is 21st century, let us act and think like it!

  77. I am no judge of character but i truly am deeply hurt by Teddy’s arrest. Regardless of his fame and fortune or celebrity status i do not think anyone in their right mind can take another human being’s life away. Teddy is a good human being a man of strength, a man of morals and values and a man of integrity and respect. He is strong willed and is from a serious Christian background therefore i totally disagree that he did what he has been accused of doing. All i can say to Teddy is, the Lord we all beleive and trust in, is in control. Fear not, for he will be standing before you in that courtroom and he will grant you your right and freedom. This is a testing time and all you can do is just be patient and have trust in Jesus and i am positive God will see you and your family + your loved ones through this difficult time. And whoever is behind this will pay and pay dearly because what goes around comes around and comes around real fast. Just know that you are very important to a whole lot of people around this world and you mean alot to them too from your friends to your family and to your fans all around the world. Nothing is stronger than prayer and we are all praying for you…God will definately listen to atleast one of us and free you. Keep up the good work and we are all proud of you and what you are doing and may the sky be the limit for you. May Jesus always protect you and don’t you worry you will be out of that prison cell even before you know it…..Tewodros i love you, your people love you, your country loves you but most importantly God loves you………Be Blessed……x

    You know one thing you are comfortable any where except ethiopa, if you are illegal. Much better to stay any where than ethiopia, why ?? because most countries have democracy and freedom of speech !

    But I still love my home & people its just our corrupt government. Teddy dont worry very soon the truth will be known and you will be free.

    God bless

  83. wow wow wow! it is so amazing to me how we Ethiopian are so far away from reality. let’s try to separate the facts from myths…
    First, Teddy is a great artist who transformed/contributed to the music industry a great deal. in return he made a fortune and a name for himself. – I ain’t mad at him! good job. but that is that!
    Second teddy was imprisoned on the terms of hit-and-run allegedly killing another ‘helpless’ human being. Now if his witness and reasoning has proven to be correct he will be released if not he ought to legally responsible to the man he performed vehicular homicide.
    Now, if we choose bypass the fact that he killed someone on the mere alignment of him as a role model is totally senseless. We should be asking our conscious what exactly makes a role model… because someone is able to stir our dull emotion with beats and words and phrases … we just don’t claim that person to be a hero hence to give him a refugee from all responsibilities…

    I personally don’t think teddy’s rubbing off with the government has caused his incarceration. if teddy is in the truth side, believe you me! the truth shall set him free. else he has to be responsible.

    on a slight different note, how come we Ethiopians are so angry about Teddy’s situation but NOT mad at our current naked impoverished state of existence? it is amazing to me how we can be so complacent about the ever beggar, hunger stricken way of life of millions in our nation? but, teddy’s imprisonment is such a shocking life impact moment of truth! ( PLEASE!)
    that is our hypocrisy! How I wish if we have a tiny bit of zeal to be a part of the development of this nation? how I wish we have a deep sense of shame on the state of existence our citizens has to live every day? well we choose the easy way out, which doesn’t require any action at all! we blame the government!

    how I wish we wake up and honestly challenge ourselves beyond the shallow “my way or the highway” arrogant attitude that shadows our logical reasoning?
    HOW I WISH WE HAVE HALF THE COURAGE WE ARE SHOWING FOR TEDDY’S CAUSE TO THE MILLION’S WAY OF SURVIVAL IN THAT BARREN LAND OF OURS! HOW I WISH!

  93. well let me explain sth to people who think teddy is guilty. firstly teddy sang a song that woyane’s aren’t proud off and then he goes to jail (u think this is just a coincidence) and then there gets a mix up with the date of death of the victim (another coincidence). the judge is the cruelest judge (judge leoul g/mariam) and is the judge that was covering the “kinijit case” (another conicidence)(lol). ok and another thing there was a guy that said “he was driving with a high speed” but then he wrote teddy’s licence (i didnt’ know people with super powers really existed)(how can he run and right if teddy was at a high speed as he says he was). and besides teddy is smart. and for those of u that say teddy is another person like us “THINK AGAIN!!!!!!!!” coz firstly he’s smarter and a more patriot than we all really are so once again
    THINK AGIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  94. any one who do not know the whole story about the case may say so many things.
    for me now teddy should be punished because
    1. he definately have no driving licence which he can have with 30 minutes u see extra careless……of him and those around him.
    any one having a family and friends can not do this ok
    2. he lied that he was with his friends at 23 till 9 ocklock in the evening but he was actually there at the time of the accident.
    3. if any one remembers at the time of the accident addis admas wrote teddy was crashed near cmc at 7.10 it was wrote 3 years ago.
    finally i was the one fun of teddy and was surely now i know teddy has made some crimes due to he and his careless families and friends which they can finish every thing before this stage. any way God bless him…
