Working full time and attending night classes at Addis Ababa University for the next seven years, she never stopped singing; she often said music was her life and she was addicted to it.

After a long journey, she released her first Album in 2007 entitled “Shemametew”. She wrote eight of the eleven songs on the album herself and collaborated on the other three with her producer Elias Melka. Her album was nominated for the 2010 Kora Music Awards.
