    It is a lesson for all Ethiopians . Regardless how much talent you got Ethiopians WOYANE tplf politicians will not appreciate one bit unless you create art the way the leaders like it. Woyane sued and destroyed Abate Mekuriya when he wrote and produced the play called “YELISTROW OPRA” FORCING HIM to re-write the play, renaming the title to “YEGODANAW OPRA” . His artist Ethiopian life Died RIGHT THEN.

    ALSO with so many of EThiopians free spirit died WHEN HE WAS VICTIMIZED LEFT HELPLESS


    Abate’s being victimized by sansoor was said to be the main reason for the begining of never ending brain drain in the last 25 years in Ethiopia. Since theN close to 10 million Ethiopians left Ethiopia to other countries.
