Haitians Resentment of 19-Year U.S. Occupation
Although Haiti won independence in 1804, by 1908 the island had collapsed under dire economic and political influences. Out of control military factions battled for power.
In 1915, the U.S. Occupation brought stability to Haiti. Initially Haitians accepted it, but grew resentful of America's absolute control in time.

Just looking at a picture like this one of Wanito performing a song in this new album Biografi Mwen would give you the impression that this guy is inspired and transformed when singing.

I love this guy and i believe that he is going a long way.
