Don Kato Registered His Candidacy for Senator under the Verite Banner

Once, President Michel Martelly with his anti-establishment voice made himself one of the country's most sought after musicians; he raised his voice against every government throughout his music career. However, during the second year of his Presidency in 2013, he was accused by some musicians like Don Kato from the band 'Brothers Posse'. Kato complained their group was not invited to perform at the Mardi Gras Carnival because some of their songs attack Martelly's administration.


In response, the President had said, there is no doubt that music has definite power to overthrow a government, but he is not bothered at all by the music of 'Brothers Posse', even at the slightest. A carnival is a party, not a platform to stage street protest. No artist has an inborn right to perform during a particular celebration. Selecting a group to perform was an administrative decision of an appointed committee.
