Has Chachi canceled the concert for Jesus?

Chachi Tadesse was expected to perform at Ras Shewa Entertaimnent on April 5.But she didn’t.The reason, according to the organizer, was because she “found Jesus and came to realize that singing was a sinful act.”

Daniel Kibret, the Ras Shewa Entertaimnet Manager, says “After she signed the agreement, she kind of disappeared for a week or so.When I finally met her, she started saying she couldn’t perfom because she’s a changed person now and it was against her new-found faith.’

The show will not be rescheduled as the singer went back the US.

The alleged ‘conversion’ and subsequent cancellation of the concert didn’t go well with the organizer.

Now, Daniel says he has finished preparations to bring a charge against her and Yugo Pentecostal Church for ‘losses’.

Daneil says he is ‘technically bankrupt’ and seeking 150.000 Birr expense and 200,000 Birr profit losses.

The charge against the church might be amusing but Daneil insists, ‘they are the major influence on her descion” and he wasn’t going to do away with them.

“We have discussed the matter twice in the presence of the pastor, Moh.They were asking me to cancel the concert for which I refused.From that day onwards, Chachi was looking for every excuses not to come to the concert.’ he says.

But Chachi has denied the allegations.She told Rodas, a monthly Amharic magazine, that it was the promoter, Daniel who was responsible for mishandling of the event.

Chachi said she loves her fans and she wouldn’t do such a thing. She says the concert has been shelved as the promoters breached the contract.”They even failed to provide me with a car to come to the concert.” She said there was poor ticket sales for they haven’t done enough promotion and she complained they failed to respond to her request to postphone the concert.

Chachi, however, told interviewers that she wishes to take a different path in life and for her the most important thing is ‘the fear of God.”

“When I come back from the US, which I am planning to do soon, I want to do only what God wants me to,” she was quoted as saying.

    Hi Arefe;

    This an interesting post. It’s “amusing” indeed to hear that the organizer wants to sue the church as well.

    Is there any info as to when Chachi decided to stop doing music the way she’s been doing it? How long ago is it since she has become a convert? Any idea?

    I wish to hear more from Chachi or any other one who speak her side of the story.
    I don’t know if I have done justice in the report to both sides.
    If it interests you to know what Daniels in the interview was she was converted some two weeks before the day of concert. He says she was orthodox Christian and when he dined with her some two weeks before; she was strict about ordering ordered fasting food, like devote Orthodox Christians do.

    1. Daniel’s fathers name is Kebede, not Kibret.
    2. Chachi is lying. She was indeed driven to the concert venue, but refused to sing once there. I know, because I was the one who drove her.

    I’ve never liked Chchi. She’s a bad immitator (of Gash Aberra Molla, or so i thought). And I’m not a protestant christian myself. Infact, I do not consider myself spiritual anymore. Perhaps an Agnostic, the minute I’m done studying what an Agnostic means. But, tell me Tesfa, if Chchi did convert, aren’t her sins supposed to be blotted out? Is there any sin that the “blood of Christ” won’t be able to wash out? If i remember correctly, it’s been a while since I read the bible, it says somewhere in Isaiah i think: “if your sins were as red as blood… they’d be as white as the driven snow (or ameday, in amharic)”.

    BTW, Arefe, did you check out the video i posted on my blog of the Sun-halo that created all that commotion? My little bro of 14 took it!

    As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers,
    Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother,
    casting a net into the sea – for they were fishermen.
    And he said to them, “Follow me and I will make
    you fish for people.” Immediately they left their
    nets and followed him. (Matthew 4:18-20)

    What is our purpose in this world?
    This may seem like a silly question with a very obvious answer
    we exist to tell the good news of Christ Jesus and see people transformed into a life of love and obedience to our Lord.
    so i encourage u (chahci) . keep up the good work !!
    God bless u more n more..
    much love:)

    For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26 ,God bless u chachi and Glory to God

    Chachiye, i am extremely happy for you! By the way I love love love your style you should keep it up, and the work you are doing too…..ofcourse not the zefen…..you are such an inspiration. God Bless You.
    and also the people shouldn’t sue the church especially Moh! he didn’t do anything to convert her, christianity and believing in the one and only true Jesus is her life decision. So IF they have to sue how about they sue her, but i don’t see the point.
    P.S. I seriously don’t see where the 350,000 birr. came from.
    You are my role model Chachi,
    <3, me from U.S.
