Condolence Message from Kassahun a Tilahun’s fan  & admirer  from Berlin, Germany

 

Dear Family Members of our beloved Artist Dr. Tilahun Gessesse,

It is with profound sorrow that we received the sad news of Dr. Tilahun's unexpected and sudden pass away.  No words can adequately express the significance of his contribution to his country and fellow citizens.

Artist Dr. Tilahun was simply a person who a nation can have once in many generations.  As such, we consider his passing away as a great national loss.  On the other hand, we firmly believe his name will always remain alive through his innumerable and soul touching works.

As Ethiopians, we share the grieve of his loss with you, the loved ones of Dr. Tilahun, and the peoples and Government of Ethiopia at large.  May The Almighty rest his soul in Heaven and give you strength.

Sincerely,

Kassahun Ayele

Ambassador of Ethiopia to Germany, and the entire staff of the Embassy.

BERLIN, GERMANYKassahun

  Dr. Tilahun Gessese gave us love and thought us Ethiopians, how to love our country and how to respect eachother and one another in this tragic period of time.

Tile supported us, when we were helpless, he gave us hope, when we were hopless.

Tile encouaged us, when we were weak!

I pray, that his Ethiopian spirit will be and stay with us Ethiopians for ever.

All Ethiopians miss you Tile!

May the God of Ethiopia gives you the price you deserve!

Ethiopia and Ethiopians lost an amazing talent and a truly gifted vocalist in the passing of Tilahun Gessese.  Despite his transition, however, Tilahun Gessese will reamin the King of Ethiopian Music for many, many generations to come.

May God give strength to Tilahun Gessese's family and to an entire nation that is in grief because of this significant loss.

We love you, Tilahun; you will always live in the hearts and minds of today's and tomorrow's Ethiopians. Your unforgettable and irreplaceable songs shall remain Ethiopia's treasures.

Rest in peace, Tilahun.  So long.

Condolence Message from Kirubel a Tilahun’s fan  & admirer  from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

 

Tilish, I am thankful!

As a young man in his early twenties I was not that lucky to enjoy most of breathtaking stage performances of  Tilish. I can remember very few concerts such Kebir Le Ethiopia at Meskel Square where Tilish made a surprising entrance and magnificent performance. However small my chances were to see him live, his songs, every single of the very few hundreds I heard, were joy to listen, wisdom to capture and more than anything a bridge to link myself with my nation.

Among very few things I cherish in my life and from random toughts of my country, Tilahun’s songs and the memories that tied with them is amongst the first things I treasure most. I thank u sir, May God Bless you and takes you in to his heaven.

Tilahun Gesesse

Life well lived.

Condolence Message from Fitsum a Tilahun’s fan  & admirer  from Lorton, USA

 

One of the Ethiopian horoes, Tilahun Gessesse - we were shocked when you were injured some 17 yrs ago, and cried when you lost your leg to a disease, but the actual mourning came with your passing away, one of the saddest news I ever had to write about to families and friends. At the same time we celebrate your life-time accomplishments now and in the generations to come.

You are the Mandela of Ethiopia. The only few differences

- Mandela is a hero in freedom fighting while you are a hero in art/culture/music

- Mandela still lives while you said "I have finished my course"..like appostle Paul

We all miss you Tilish and RIP!

Condolence Message from Gize a Tilahun’s fan  & admirer  from Washington, USA

 

Selam,

You must feel sad as all families do.  Tilahun Gessese offended a lot of people when other well known and respected singers refrained from singing the Derg's praises.  I don't want to make you feel bad at this time but this is the truth.  He sung the praises of a regime that massacred a lot of Ethiopians.  He did not lift one finger during that whole time to address any of the injustices that were easy to see.  So in a way he has gone to a higher justice.  Its funny the Emperor made him who he is.  Unless you and he deny that too.  Yet he laughed, sang and feted the very people who murdered this father of a nation.  And now after 17 years of betrayal this is how he seeks to be remembered.  How can you feel people do not feel "Tizibt" ? 

You are a grieving family and his sin is not yours, but you need to address this.  Otherwise you will always know there are those of us whose fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers were killed by the same murderers Tilahun lauded in song and praise.  Today you feel the grief we have felt for 3 decades.  How does it feel ?Gize

Condolence Message from getu a Tilahun’s fan  & admirer  from St Paul, Ramsey

 

How can one explain the very person of Dr. Tilahun Gessesse as an artist? Please allow me in trying to gather words together to make any sibilance of my thoughts to be able to express my feelings to his family. Indeed, it goes without saying that he was an icon and a giant, most of all unequal of his generation. He was the definition of our growing up and most of all, being our teacher of the very essence and meaning of love, sorrow, the melancholy feeling of what is churning in our soul. A day never has past, when I did not listen to his soothing songs, which has kept me so connected with my country, despite the long time I have passed in out of my country. I cannot say more enough, how I was sadden by the news of sudden passing so soon. It is my sincere wish and I prayer his family will have the strength and keep his legacy alive. May God accept his soul. 

With respect and sorrow

We will never forget you -Tilish! You will always live in our hearts and the generation to come. May we all ask ourselves how many of us could impact our society as much as he did through his God given talent?  Let us continue to support his cause that he started for diabetics. This way his legacy shall continue. May God bless your soul! What a day?  Despite of all, we thank God for letting you breathed your last breathe in your beloved country, among the people you loved and loved by, truly irreplaceable!Mofo

Condolence Message from Hailemelekot a Tilahun’s fan  & admirer  from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

 

Dear Family Members of our beloved Dr.Artist Tilahun Gessesse,

 For  more than half a century He was living with us. I grew up listening his beautiful voices Tilahun  was  the page of our History and he will remain so for the generations to come. The history of modern Ethiopia is incomplete without the great artistic works of Tilahun.He was an ardent nationalist who had been participated in all battle fronts “Enqwans Behiwot Eyalehu Bequme

Le Hagre Nestanet Yemuagetal Atsme” was one of his great musical work that helped Ethiopian army  as an engine  of morale to drove out expansionist in Ogaden. As he did express in his music Yemuagetal Astme he did brought Ethiopians together to work for unity and peace. I have no words that sufficiently express the weight of his contribution to his country and fellow citizens. Even in his death he brought us  as one people. He brought the government and people of Ethiopia together. The state funeral by itself was an indication of this oneness. 

Death took away  Tilahun  from the stage but not from the hearts of millions of Ethiopians. Tilahun is living in the hearts of all,he will continue to live with us  as one of the legendary hero of our time.  I believe his name will always remain alive through his innumerable and soul touching works.

Let me  share the grieve of his loss with you, the loved ones of Dr. Tilahun, Let The Almighty rest his soul in Heaven and give you strength.

Sincerely,

Hailemelekot Agizew
