March 1, 1896 marked a truly historic day in the history of Ethiopia. This is the day that Ethiopia made a decisive victory over colonialism, at a point when the white people's domination seemed relentlessness. Under the able leadership of Emperor Menelik, Ethiopia defended herself against the advancing Italians and Eritrean paratroopers, to remain un-colonized by Western aggression.
In honour of this victory over white aggression, we bring you this mini mix as a salute to African freedom and liberation on the continent, and in the diaspora. We feature in the mix an excerpt of an interview with an Ethiopian entrepreneur who operates a shoes outfit called Sole Rebel.
The mix was produced by me, Academic Entertainment and our sound system, Front Runner International, and features jingles from Dexta Malawi, D-Frent and Blahk Rahs. Enjoy and feel free to share across your social networks.
