Drama in Paris – singer Mikaben died during concert


Haitian singer Mikaben died on Saturday evening during a concert in Paris. The 41-year-old collapsed on the stage of the Accor Arena in the east of the French capital and died despite the efforts of the emergency services, the concert organizer reported on Twitter on Sunday.

Videos published on online networks showed the singer suddenly interrupting his performance and collapsing in front of the shocked audience on his way from the stage.

Mikaben, whose real name is Michael Benjamin, performed in Paris with the Haitian band Carimi. His pregnant wife Vanessa said she had “lost her other half” and was “speechless”.

Wyclef Jean: “Influential young artist”
Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry tweeted that he was “shocked by the sudden death of a young and very talented artist”. Haiti-born rapper Wyclef Jean called Mikaben “one of the most influential and inspiring young artists of our generation” in an interview with The Miami Herald.

Mikaben, son of the well-known singer Lionel Benjamin, was born in 1981 in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince and worked as a singer and producer. He has contributed to several of the band Carimi’s hits, including “Baby I Missed You” (see video above) and “Fanm sa Move”.
