  1. This is a dark day for Ethiopia and Ethiopians. We have lost a legend, an all time best. May his soul rest in peace.

  2. Tiliye is one of the very few musicians that transcends generations
    Ethiopia has truly lost a great legend
    May God Rest His Soul in Peace

  3. I am powerless I have no word to express my sadness; the only thing I am doing is cry, cry; cry my tears flow like a stream.
    I wish him to rest in peace, and my condolence to his nearest and dearest first and to every Ethiopian he entertained for free on most of his life.

  4. I like all Tilahun’s songs. But most of all i like Tilahun’s Abareh belew yanene amestegna tegentai wonbede song.

  5. I am amazed by Ato Meles’ move to exploit Tilahun’s death to his party’s advatnage. It seems they are getting smarter. They are coming to our territory and claiming our hero Tilahun as their hero. Aygermeme?
