Muzikawi releases Habtamu Tedla’s new Single ‘Awey Yegna Neger’

ADDIS ABABA – Habtamu Tedla has launched his latest single “Awey Yegna Neger,” adding another song to his collection of singles.

Muzikawi says the new single delves into themes of love, questioning the dynamics of affection in relationships with lyrics.

Hailing from Gonder, Habtamu’s journey began post-high school performing in amateur clubs such as Fikat Theatre and Music Group and Circus Gonder.

He later joined the Military Orchestra at Central Command, where he honed his skills as a professional musician.

The former Ethiopian Idol and Fana Lamrot contestant currently collaborates with musical entities such as Ethio Color at Fendka and the Federal Police Orchestra.

The latest release adds to Habtamu’s growing number of single hits including ‘Gonder,’ ‘Alenager,’ and ‘Yewelo Lij.’

‘Awey Yegna Neger,” composed by renowned saxophonist and composer Jorga Mesfin, blends traditional Ethiopian rhythms with modern jazz elements.

It is set in the contemporary triple meter signature known as ‘Chickchika,’ a rhythm integral to Ethiopian music, Muzikawi says.

The song is now available on Muzikawi YouTube channel and digital streaming platforms.
