Akon and Rihanna are due to perform tonight on the New Year’s Eve party. And naturally the curvier one has taken all the pre-shine. Little mind is being paid to 2007’s number two best selling artist (next to Daughtry).

This is a public service announcement letting you know that Akon is an excellent pick on the part of the organizers and the one that everyone should be watching out for- hot performance wise. The singles from Rihanna’s second album, I did not feel. She may have to rely heavily on Pon de Replay and may be Umbrella to get the people grooving.

Hmmm! I like this music critique role!

Moreover, we have always been down with Senegalese people. Hailesellasie kicked it with and his foundation awarded Sengor; no other African national football team jersey, not even Walyawochu’s, has been worn by Ethiopians more than the Teranga Lions’; and now Akon is going to be upfront with our ladies and tell them how he wants to love them. Way to strengthen the cultural ties between the two countries!

I have got one itsy bitsy concern though. When the outlandish rumors about Michael Jackson possibly coming here were circulating, I was like “ parents, hide your kids!” Now that I know who is really here I am like “ Parents, hide your kids!” Ironically, nearly 3000 free tickets are earmarked, just like last time, for outstanding students. Heavens forbid should one student escape security and make it onstage. We can not have one of the better brains hurled off stage, land unceremoniously, cognitive abilities impaired, thereby drastically reducing her/his role in yeEtiopian hidase bemaregaget reged. We cannot have that! Not with all the dummies we have at our disposal.

Imagine for  a moment yeamet baal liyu zigijit like scenario . Then Akon would have had a field day/bonanza flinging people off stage.


Staying on the international relations theme …… Cuba. Some thirty years ago, they could just have provided us with ammunition, like is the common practice, and watch us do battle with Somalia. But instead they sent thousands of soldiers tens of whom were killed. That’s unusual; and that is why I have decided to name my chromatographic column in their honor “Ethio
– Cuba wedajinet column” Incidentally this column is located parallel to the commemorative statue that has been built next to Yeabiotu dick.

Did you know that Ethiopia forgave Cuba of 2.56 million dollars (in kind) debt as a token of appreciation for the Cuban soldiers? Well, what do you know! I guess the saying “keNazeret melkam neger yiwotal woy? KeEtiopia televisions addis neger yigegnal woy?” does not always hold true.

Voters’ registration for the upcoming yekebele and yemamuaya mircha is on its fifth day. And I am interested in that like I am interested in continuing with this post.

    tibe, michael jackson was found *not guilty* of all charges. whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? ….or just to be fair we could call you a child molester too 🙂

    i’m very glad they are inviting african singers. you know when “hibret tr’eat” in ETV stopped showing western musing i was *&^)# about it. but i support their decision now!

    last night i climbed a hill with my friends to see the fireworks. it was in the middle of the city so the view was awesome. anyone want to join me for next year?
