Life and ministry
aka Maarqoos Abba Worqo’o
A relative [nephew?] of late KHC leader Abba Gole Nunamo
Maarqoos claims to be the first soloist who sang Hadiyyisa gospel songs
His oldest song in WG [Waa’i galaxxamona] is Nr. 589 “Moollanna, i heechcha kiina uwwaammo” (1969 AM = 1976/77 GC)
Maarqoos moved to Jimma and joined a Pentecostal church [Jimma Hiwot Berhan Church with its influential gospel choir?]
Did he become a pastor?
[Note that Abba Gole was the brother-in-law of Shigute.
“Abba Goli, who was converted after all the missionaries had left, became a strong leader. As a medium of the evil spirit Jara he was one of the most determined opponents of the gospel, but when the Holy Spirit conquered him, then […] he became a mighty instrument in God’s hand for the spread of the truth in his home village and very widely throughout the whole area.” (Duff, 1980, p. 380)]
Songs in hymn book
