Who is Ebdo Mihemed?

Ebdo Mihemed is a Kurdish wedding singer from Efrin, Syria. He became popular in Finland in autumn 2009 because of a YouTube video which gathered over two million viewers.

On the video, a Kurdish language song Pinsedî Zêde sung by Mihemed is buffalaxed into Finnish. The title of the Finnish buffalax is Niilin hanhet after a phrase repeated in the refrain. Another phrase repeated in the soramimi is Pensseli-setä, which also became a nickname for Mihemed in Finland. Several other videos of Mihemed buffalaxed into Finnish have also appeared on YouTube, such as Mursuvaara, Lakana and Mihemmedin Eskimolaulu. The television production company Filmiteollisuus brought Mihemed to perform in Finland in November 2009. He appeared on the show Ne Salmiset.

On December 9, 2009, a music album of Pensseli-setä was released in Finland. He made a second tour to Finland, covering the whole country, in February 2010. He has since not appeared in Finland. In 2011 and 2012, he has been the local contact for the Finnish media for reporting events in the Syrian civil war. Because of the YouTube video, Mihemed is usually referred to in Finland as "Pensseli-setä".
