Haitian singer Michael Benjamin, affectionately known as Mikaben, has died at the age of 41.

The singer had been performing on stage in Paris with Haitian band konpa CaRiMi when he reportedly collapsed.

The incident played out live on Twitter, with Frantz Duval, a Haitian newspaper editor, first alerting fans that something was wrong.

Then the singer, Mickael Guirand, told the fans to go away.

“End of the concert. We must evacuate the room,” Guirand said.

“It’s very complicated. We need prayers.”

CCTv Footage

Video footage from the concert shows Mikaben leaving the stage when she suddenly collapses to the ground.

The scene was cleared while he was being treated, with reports indicating that she was given CPR.

Mikaben was a respected singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer whose hit “Ayti Se” moved millions in the aftermath of Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake.

He was born in Port-au-Prince and began writing at the age of 15.

Mikaben released several albums, formed the group Krezi Mizik, and also worked as a producer.

Family

He was married to Vanessa Fanfan and the couple had a daughter and another son on the way. Mikaben also had a son from a previous relationship.

“This is shocking,” Wyclef Jean told the Miami Herald.

“I’m incredulous,” singer Roberto Martino told the outlet.

“This is someone I worked with for years and considered a brother, a good friend. We talk almost every day. We have a talk together.”

Martino spoke with Mikaben just before taking the stage on Saturday night, he told the Miami Herald.

“Was so happy. I couldn’t wait to get on stage with CaRiMi. It was one of his greatest achievements in his life. It’s a band that he idolized,” Martino told the outlet.

“I’m lost for words. I’m broken.”

An official cause of death has not been released.
