Teddy Afro break his silence with ናዕት

The music and its contents are feared by the government. Well-known reggae singer Teddy Afro has released a critical song for the first time since PM Abiy came to power. The song criticizes the government’s focus on glitter. It analyzes the resentment of racial politics.

The title of the song is taken from the bible which means unleavened bread. Unleavened bread is any of a wide variety of breads which are prepared without using rising agents such as yeast. Unleavened breads are generally flat breads; however, not all flat breads are unleavened. Unleavened breads, such as the tortilla and roti, are staple foods in Central America and South Asia, respectively.

Unleavened breads have symbolic importance in Judaism and Christianity. Jews and Christians consume unleavened breads such as matzo during Passover & Eucharist respectively, as commanded in Exodus 12:18. Per the Torah Old Testament, the newly emancipated Israelites had to leave Egypt in such a hurry that they could not so much as spare time for their breads to rise; as such, bread which before it can rise is eaten as a reminder.
