Wanito and his popular song Gadon Re-v or M' VleParenn

Wanito has released a new album called "BiyografiMwen" However, most people know the song as M' Vle Parenn. It is quite amazing to see the number of people in Haiti who could sing the entire song by heart. I was in a show recently performed by Wanito. Throughout the audience, you could hear people screaming: "M' Vle Parenn", Wanito "M' Vle Parenn". It was not actually until Wanito decided to play the song Gadon Re-v that I realized how much people love the song.


The song "Gadon Re-v" or "M' Vle Parenn"for most. The title of the original song on youtube is "M' VleParenn". The song depicts the stress, anxiety, confusion, and fear that comes with the news of having a woman pregnant in Haiti, especially when you're just a young boy living with your parents and not ready to assume such responsibilities. Luckily for Wanito, it was just a dream, a nightmare as he describes in the song. The story is very relevant in our culture; both boys and girls can relate to it. The humorous aspect of the song makes listening to it even more enjoyable." He described the album with each song being given priority.

Aside from the bouncy "Do Re Mi", "GadonRè-v", is one of the album's few upbeat tracks. While its beat may be celebratory in tone, the storyline it tells isn't. A high school student, a year shy of graduating from secondary school has to drink, or more accurately put, gulp the cup before him: his girl is pregnant. Unemployed and not yet ready for impending fatherhood, he faces his situation with grim pleasure. His friends rejoice over his current lot in life; with him out of the way, he's one less competitor they'll have to face when they place their candidacy for the presidency. Perhaps wanting to just give teen listeners a glimpse of what life could be, Wanito changes direction and reveals in bridge that all was but a dream, a teenage nightmare.

With his gift for crafting metaphor-rich lyrics, and composing original music, Wanito will surely go far and wide with his talent.
