Thousands of people gathered at Holy Trinity Cathedral, Addis Ababa, to pay their last respect to prominent Ethiopian musician Tamrat Desta, who died at age 40.

Desta collapsed on his way to a clinic in Addis Ababa on April 18th. He was later pronounced dead.

He was survived by his wife and five children.


Desta was well known for his song “Hakime Nesh,” among many others.
