I just got word from friends that are at the ESFNA Dallas opening. They told me that the stadium was full there are long lines at the entrance with people waiting to enter the stadium. The crowd was way, way beyond the expectation of the organizers. The opening Day was amazing, with everyone waving Ethiopian flag. A horseman came into the stadium impersonating Atse Menelik with the song Tikur Sew, the crowd chanted “yidegem” and the horseman came into the stadium from what I heard it was an amazing opening event. Ethiopiawinet has won. Ethiopians have spoken Ethiopiawinet will not be sold for “blood money”
Rumors have it that the Sheik was supposed to be a Guest of Honor at the Woyane event in Washington D.C. but has been denied visa to enter the U.S. Rumors also have it that this has been very, very upsetting to him and has 4 big gun lawyers to get it resolved. We shall see.
As far as I am concerned “Ethiopiawinet” has won our community has sent a strong message.
