Mulugeta Abate

Mulugeta Abate is an Ethiopian songwriter, arranger, and lyricist popular for his prolific work on about 400 different songs in various languages of Ethiopia. His latest works includes the album by Man Alemosoh, which featured a popular song "Wello." He also is credited for albums by Getachew Hailemariam in the Oromo language, and Desaligne Mersah in the Gurage language. He also arranged the popular Amharic song "ሕልሜን የት ልክሰሰው" sung by Gosaye Tesfye.

Mulugeta Abate is from Dire Dawa, Ethiopia.

In Ethiopia, the vocalist receives most of the credit for the songs he or she performs, while the lyricist and melodist are often not credited, or barely mentioned, and are generally unrecognized by the public. Thus, most Ethiopians do not know the authors of songs, as in the case of Mulugeta Abate.
