As I was shocked to stumble on this news, I couldn’t believe my eyes , when I saw that headline. So to make sure it wasn’t just a random flyer, I kept researching. The further and further I was looking into this story, I noticed that many major Haitian publications such as Le Nouveliste  are reporting that Chris Brown and Lil Wayne have officially agreed to be on the bill that is being negotiated between Swizz Beats Productions and  BigO Productions. The production company BigO Productions, which is ran by Olivier Martelly the son of Haitian president, Michel Martelly and First lady Sophia Martelly  agreed under the requirements, of Swizz beats himself to bring all his celebrity friends out, ONLY if  the concert is free for the Haitian people if they are too perform at Champ De Mars on Friday June 26th.

Of course,  in my head as I read this, all that kept coming to my mind was, for what ?!!! Will this concert actually serve a purpose for the Haitian people ?!!! I mean seriously!!!!  But then I realized maybe, just maybe I was judging too quickly, until the article mentioned that,  the purpose of bringing this concert to Haiti is to promote positive awareness  to the country and the money raised will be donated to a local non-profit organization.

Although, the article mentions that many Haitian people aren’t happy about the concert, since the announcement was made public, many believe this is all just a publicity stunt and that the concert isn’t really going to do anything to help the country.

Lastly, for those who may not know much about the history of Haiti, Champ De Mars, where the concert is being held at is the largest public square in downtown Port-Au-Prince, which is where the Haitian national palace , government municipal and police buildings are located, along with the iconic statue of the “Unknown Slave” ,that symbolized the slaves liberation.
