WANITO 'The Voice of Haiti'

WANITO, the man known as, “The Voice of Haiti,” is preparing to reignite the Caribbean/Haitian Music Industry (HMI) with his sophomore album.
“The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck,” best describes the talented artist, Louis Pascal Juanito. He is commonly referred to as the Haitian Bob Marley due to his writing style and the way he portrays Haiti through his lyrics. The young artist is able to bless any crowd with his versatile, energetic voice, his pure, spirited style and catchy lyrics.

Juanito, best known as his stage name WANITO, was born on April 21, 1988 in Jeremie, Haiti – a city approximately 186 miles southeast of the country’s capital. He was raised by his mother, until he moved to the Port-au-Prince to continue his secondary education at Lycée de National de Petion-Ville. Though he was very shy, he continued to follow his dreams by performing around students, friends, and family. Upon hearing his unique voice, his peers encouraged him to participate in talent shows like, “Konkou Chante Nwel,” a Christmas contest run by Telemax and “Digicel Stars” produced by Digicel, a Caribbean-based cellphone company. Although he didn’t make the finals of either competition, he wasn’t discouraged. Rather, it fueled the embers deep within him.
