It is hosted by Melat Belayneh, Kaleb Hailu and Mikias Sebsibe; passionate friends who are working hard to change perceptions in Ethiopian society through a well informed and entertaining conversation.
In Ethiopia we are used to shallow entertainment shows that add little or no value to our reasoning and logical thoughts. Most shows focus on trends that can attract huge audience and even if there are shows that try to advocate rational thinking they lack the entertainment factor. Hashtag Mindin keeps the right balance between entertainment and educational aspect of a show. You are guarantied to engage with the ideas being debated and the issues they raise definitely sparks a question in your mind. They always present their own perspectives, but don’t force it on you to accept it; they will tell you the facts and help you create your own opinion.
Many people complain about Kana Tv and the programs that are being aired on the station. Professional meetings have been held to put pressure on the channel and there is even a smear campaign by religious institutions to influence audience from tuning in to the station. Even though they have a valid concern, it’s more of a pessimistic view. The station can help create a healthy competition between existing channels and it will help improve the overall quality of the sector. And to be honest the station airs some shows that can educate and add value to Ethiopian audience. #Mindin is one of those shows.
