  1. Teddy Afro Album is not a good quality. I never expect this from him. It’s not good!!
    I have one question? he released his music on Saturday and engaged on Sunday Why? I think he scared about his music and all media cover for his beautiful wife news. I think he’s smart and all magazine cover his engagement news. Not to tell about his music comment. to tell you the truth I like his music but not Tikur Sew. I gave 10% for 100%.

  2. I really appreciate your new album. Please keep it up!!. Don’t forget you are a great asset for Ethiopia.

  3. Teddy will be heard widely and liked even when he speaks! Don’t tell that you didn’t like this album. Listen it carefully and read the lyrics. Then, I am sure you say wow…. Tedy weldone. keep going! yeah,huh….
