Who Is Mikaben? Haitian Singer Dies After Collapsing on Stage During Concert

Haitian Singer Michael Benjamin, better known by his stage name, Mikaben, died Saturday, Oct. 15, while performing live in Paris, France.

Miami Herald reported that the 41-year-old singer collapsed in the middle of a concert while he was performing along with the Haitian Kompa band, Carimi.

As per The Haitian Times, Mikaben’s cause of death is unknown but the preliminary reports suggest that the singer died from cardiac arrest.

Who was Mikaben?

The Haitian singer, Mikaben was known for his famous collaborations with various musicians like bands Carimi and T-Vice.

Mikaben was born in 1981 and was into songwriting at a very young age. At 15, he became efficient in writing songs, however, education was also a primary concern for the legend.

He went to Montreal college, in Canada and pursued his passion until his death. Interestingly, Mikaben was one such artist who could easily handle songs in four different languages: Spanish, French, Creole, and English.

Back in 2004, Mikaben came into the limelight after launching a band named, Krezi Mizik, along with David Dipoux, his cousin. Together they released two music albums which was definitely a kickstart for the both. Later, Mikaben started to collaborate with bands including Carimi and T-Vice.

After the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti, which ruined the entire place in 2010, Mikaben took a major part of his precious time to visit several orphanages, hospitals, and camps, along with other music artists to bring out the long-lost smile on the victim’s faces by performing for them.

How Did Mikaben Die?

On Saturday, the Nwel Tristes singer was performing as a guest star for the Haitian band, Carimi, at the Accor Arena before a huge crowd in Paris. Shortly after the concert, Mikaben chose to leave the stage but passed out in the middle. Although the singer was given CPR immediately, he could not be revived.

All of a sudden, Carimii singer Michael Guirand announced the “End of the concert. The room must be evacuated and the situation is much more complicated. We need prayers for Mikaben.”

After a brief wait, social media influencer Carel Pedre as well as Franz Duval, the editor of Haiti’s Le Nouvelliste newspaper, broke the tragic news of the singer’s death on Twitter.

Sadly, Mikaben left for the heavenly residence leaving behind his pregnant wife, Vanessa, who is due in December as well as his one-year-old daughter. The singer is also survived by his father, Lionel Pere Noel Benjamin, who is also a musician better known for his Christmas song, Abdanwel.
