After two and a half years of rehearsals and practice, ‘Yegna’ is a hit on the musical and theatrical scenes in Addis Ababa. The formation of such a band with a purpose of librating young girls is a unique phenomenon. ‘Girl Hub Ethiopia’ concocted the idea of forming a girls’ band, which challenges taboos and other societal impositions through acting and singing. The initiative is now managed by ‘Yegna Bet’, (our house), a consortium made up of Emerge, Mango Productions Ltd and Deloitte consulting.
