There were few talking points at the concerts held in Alvik and Globen. Both of the concerts have attracted many fans in Sweden. In the concert hall of Alvik where Abdu sang, some were disappointed with the temperature settings of the venue.There were no ventilation system inside and most were sweating. Furthermore, some people were asked to pay with cash or Swish only. As a result, this led to unusual line at the ATM line closest to the hall not to mention the time it took as an additional obstacle. It has also been observed that, this was the case in Ephrem's concert.
It would have been favorable if fans knew the method of payment at the door beforehand. In Ephrem's concert, few people were returned after they heard that the concert arena were full. Some of these fans said prices to entrance were going up. It was the opinion of some that, it could have been better if online ticketing system were applied since there were audiences who arrived from another city to participate at the event.

The venue at Globen were better in terms of design and sound system compared to the one in Alvik while the price of beverages were better at the latter. Apart from minor incidents, there were no disturbances at the stage where the musicians presented their work. Overall, many were entertained at the concerts with few room left for improvement. Were you there? What's your opinion? 

On the other hand, there are speculations that the next musicians to arrive at the capital are Lij Michael and Madingo Afework. Lij Michael has been popular for integrating hip hop style music to Ethiopian songs. The title "Zemenay mariye" has been a hit song and favored by many. He's currently working on a new song together with Sami-Dan. The name of the song is entitled, "Ayzosh". On another  note, Madingo has published his latest album labelled "Swedilat"  two years ago and has got a lot of admiration. In an interview with a radio station in Addis Ababa, popular artist Teddy afro has applauded the album specially the song "godanaw godanaw (Yearategnaw Tatsh )".

Det fanns några samtals ämnen på konserterna hölls i Alvik och Globen.  Båda konserterna har lockat många fans i Sverige. På concert hall i Alvik där Abdu sjöng, blev några besvikna med temperatur inställningar av arenan. Det fanns ingen ventilationssystem och de flesta var svettning.  Dessutom, uppmanades vissa människor att betala med kontanter eller Swish bara.  Som ett resultat, ledde detta till ovanliga linje vid ATM linjen närmast hallen. Det har observerats att detta var också fallet i Ephrem's konsert. 


Det skulle ha varit gynnsamt om man visste betalningsmetoden vid dörren i förväg.  I Ephrem's konsert, få människor returnerades när de hörde att konsertarenan var fulla. Några tycker att det kunde varit bättre om online kö system tillämpas eftersom det fanns publik som kom från en annan stad att delta på evenemanget.  

Den plats i Globen var bättre när det gäller design och ljud system jämfört med en i Alvik medan priset på drycker var bättre på den senare.  Förutom mindre incidenter fanns det inga störningar i skedet där musikerna presenterade sitt arbete.  Sammantaget många blev underhållna på konserterna med några rum kvar för förbättring.  Var du där? Vad är din åsikt?

I andra sidan, det finns spekulationer att de nästa musikerna att anländer till huvudstaden är Lij Michael och Madingo Afework.  Lij Michael har varit populärt för att integrera hip hop stil musik till Etiopiska låtar.  Titeln 'Zemenay mariye' har en hitlåt och gynnas av många.  Han arbetar för närvarande med ett nytt album tillsammans med Sami-Dan.  Namnet på albumet är "Ayzosh". På en annan not, Madingo har publicerat hans senaste album märkt "Swedilat" för två år sedan och har fått en hel del beundran.  I en intervju med en radio station i Addis Abeba, har populära artisten Teddy afro applåderade albumet speciellt den låten "godanaw godanaw (Yearategnaw Tatsh)".
