A singer in Ethiopia has been accidentally shot dead by celebratory gunfire at the opening of a hotel.
Dadhi Gelan was struck by a stray bullet while performing at the event in the small town of Ashufe, in the Oromia region. His body was taken to a nearby hospital for examination.
His friend and fellow artist Tufa Wodajo said: ”Prior to his death Dadhi warned me, saying: ‘Be careful, you might get hit by a bullet’.”
”While performing a single song, everybody was firing. At least 50 or 60 live rounds were being fired per song,” Mr Tufa told the BBC.
“And those who were firing escaped after they saw he [Dadhi Gelan] was hit.”
Police sources in the area say it is common for people to fire rounds during moments of celebration and mourning.They say the tradition is becoming a concern.
Dadhi was known for his struggle songs in the Afaan Oromoo language, and was also an author of five Afaan Oromoo books.
