His uniqueness came to an existence after he produced his single track “ca-gaach” which hit the general public in 2012.

“Killine is an irreplaceable, charismatic, resilient and perfect boy who always like to have funs with kids. I love him so much!” Fikrte Taye who is counting down the deadline reiterated.

Killine dominated Gambella which hosts five nations and nationalities. These are Nuer, Anyuak, Majenger, Oppo and Kommo because of his best beat of mixing an Ethiopians’ style of singing while producing traditional vocal at ago.

“He rarely performs in Gambella …I can’t wait to see him live on the stage in Gambella.” Ajullu Omod excitedly elaborated.

Tickets were being sold a week ago but Killine urged the organizers to allow the elderly and disables people to sit in front so that they are comfortable. “You need to allow the elders and disables so that they have access to me on stage.” Killine said.

Currently, Gambella City is very busy with flyers everywhere waiting for the best and superstar to appear on Friday afternoon.

Killine is not yet confirm whether is in Gambella or he still in Addis Ababa, but some close friends disclose to the media that he is expected to be in Gambella on Friday by morning flight from Addis Ababa while others argued that he is already arrived two days ago.

Officials from Gambella Town Administration and security organs have already tighten the security and urge the general public to mannerly cooperate with security personnel during the show.
