When he was three years old, in Ethiopia, his home country, Black Tiger was attacked by a huge snake who went around his body. He called his father who fortunately was not far away. His father managed to free him from the snake’s embrace by killing it. This event marked him.
He made a drawing of it, a snake wrapped around a face which he gave to his father as a present before leaving to Europe. He keeps a photo of the drawing on his phone but for the occasion, he made a new one.
