  • Ethiopian Officials Hit Back at Olympic Athlete Planning London Marathon Protest

    The Ethiopian Embassy in London has hit back at exiled Ethiopian athlete Feyisa Lilesa, who vowed to protest against his country’s government at the London marathon on Sunday.

    Olympic silver medallist Lilesa made headlines last year after he crossed his arms over his head at the Rio de Janeiro marathon—a symbol of resistance Oromo people widely used during anti-government protests last year—as he passed the finish line in the marathon race at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

    The 27-year-old told BBC's Sport Today on Thursday that “blood is flowing” in Ethiopia.

    Speaking to Newsweek, an Embassy spokesperson dismissed Lilesa’s remarks as “fairy tales.”

    “The blood is not flowing,” the spokesperson said. “These are, as usual, unsubstantiated claims, a way to romanticize what happened.

    “He [Lilesa] is entitled to express his opinion, he can say anything. He can return to Ethiopia and no-one would touch him. But the problem is that there are radical people behind this and the diaspora is using him for their own political agenda.”

  • “Branyie” Teddy Afro’s song leak-out, release on social media

    “Branayie”, a single from Teddy Afro’s new album “Ethiopia” has been leaked by unknown individuals, sources told Dire Tube. The single has already been released on social media just before the official day of release of the album in the coming Sunday.

    Filming of the video clip for Branaye has been started a month ago in Gojjam, Amhara. Branaye has said to have based on Bezabih and Seblewengel’s, Ethiopian version of Romeo and Juliet from Haddis Alemayehu’s “Firkir Eskemekabir” novel.

    “I don’t know who did that but, the single has already been stolen,” Amleset Muche, a renowned Modelist and Film Actress, a wife of Teddy Afro also told Dire Tube.

    “Ethiopia”, a song and the title for the new-to-be-released-album has released last week, just two days before Ethiopian Easter and hit the record for over hundreds of thousands viewers. Ethiopia song has received over 862,000 viewers on Teddy Afro’s You Tube channel within five days of release.

  • Suge Knight Claims He Knows Who Killed 2Pac And Insists They Were Really After Him

    Back in September of 1996, Suge Knight was driving the BMW that got riddled with the bullets that killed 2Pac. While it was always thought that 2Pac was the intended target (due to a scuffle that went down at the Tyson fight Suge and 'Pac were attending), Knight is now saying he was the one they were shooting at.

    This new information comes from a signed affidavit that Knight's attorney Thaddeus Culpepper released. Knight says that it was his ex-wife Sharitha and former Death Row security chief Reggie Wright, Jr. who were behind the hit, and it was Knight, not 'Pac, who they were gunning for. This information is reportedly in the new documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton, and Knight says everything they presented in this doc is true.

    A spokesperson for the film reportedly told Music News that "Culpepper told Carlin individually that not only did Knight confirm the events as portrayed in Compton, which portray Knight was the intended target and Shakur as collateral damage, as true, but also goes on to allege that these 1996 events may have been the first in a history of attempts on Knight's life, culminating in the recent attempted killing of Knight at the 1OAK Club in Los Angeles, where Knight was shot six times."

    Interestingly enough, Knight was adamant that he wouldn't tell the police who killed 'Pac if he knew who it was just two months after 'Pac died. On national television, no less.

    Reggie Wright Jr. told AllHipHop in 2015 that multiple people have tried to connect him with 2Pac's death, and that "all these people are dropping dead. I keep telling people God don’t like ugly. I hope people learn a lesson from this." That's eerie as f*ck, and can be taken a couple of different ways. Either way, there's currently no word on if authorities will be pursuing more with Wright.
