The President of a country should be the guarantor of social cohesiveness, never an instigator of denigration or lynching his countrymen publicly as opposition. At a time when the country was passing through a crisis, as a President, instead of devoting every moment to solve it Martelly was found releasing his carnival meringue targeting the journalist Liliane Pierre-Paul. Undoubtedly, it is a shame for a man of his stature to display own displeasure and disrespect in such a vulgar manner. Liliane is not only a star reporter; she is the President of the Association of Haitian Media and one of the prides of Haitian society. As a regular host of the Radio Kiskeya, she had always remained vocal against all irregularities and election frauds, especially targeting Martelly's PHTK platform. However, if Martelly likes to mark the end of his government in this manner, not in a cohesive tone, it would be typical of his character.
Here is how President Michel Martelly has decided to end his presidency. Kanaval 2016 Sweet Miky, TI LILI (Liliane Pierre Paul)
As per Haitian proverb, if you add "Ti" before someone's name, you infer that, the person is a thief. When President Michel Martelly visited Radio Television Caraibes on May 16, 2013 for a program, he commented if Lilianne Pierre Paul terms 'Michel Martelly' as 'Sweet Micky', there would be nothing wrong for him to call her as "Ti lili." Liliane opened her criticism with a French proverb which means, 'comparison is not right, it proves nothing'. She said, Sweet Micky is the name that gave Martelly his musical career and his position as the Head of the State, whereas 'Lily' is a name that was affectionately given by her brother. Liliane Pierre-Paul is a pride of the Haitian society; she is the President of the Association of Haitian Media and also a star reporter and a regular host of Radio Kiskeya. She has remained vocal against all irregularities and election frauds, especially targeting Martelly's PHTK platform. Recently, the President Martelly has released his carnival meringue for 2016 targeting journalist Liliane Pierre-Paul. It is a shame for a man like his stature to display own displeasure and disrespect in such a vulgar manner. However, if he has chosen to mark the end of his government in this manner, not in a cohesive tone, it would a typically of his character.
Here is a picture taken during a concert on June 26, 2015 in Champ-de-Mars, Port-au-Prince, Haiti with with Lil Waine and Chris Brown. At one time, President Michel Martelly took to the stage to cheer the crowd. President Martelly invited crowd to fart by saying, Pete, Pete, Pete.
While 300,000 Haitians are being deported from the Dominic Republic as stateless people, this weekend his son Oliver Martelly brought Chris Brown (American recording artist, dancer and actor) and Lil Wayne (an American rapper from New Orleans) to Haiti in private jet and spent over $1,000,000 state fund for his father's Champ de Mars concert. Olivier Martelly has already been accused of misappropriating over $20,000,000 from the State Treasury. The money could be better used in buying rice-and-beans for Haiti's starving kids, or could help the 300,000 Haitians susceptible for deportation from the Dominican Republic. The country is before a disastrous refugee situation - a situation that Martelly says does not exist! President Martelly sang a song titled "I Don't Care" at the Champ de Mars concert to support his 22 year-old dud son Sandro Martelly (Ti- Martelly or little Micky) as he was involved in the show. The concert was free and broadcasted on television channels, but, the performance of the Haitian President in the show was unlikely for a President of any normal country.

Do you think that Michel Martelly should call Liliane Pierre Paul, "Ti Lili"?
This has been the issue following a visit that the president conducted at Radio Television Caraibes. During the interview, he referred to the Radio host of Kiskeya, Ms. Liliane Pierre Paul as "Ti Lili"
The reaction to this name was not positive from Liliane. She stated that her name is Liliane and Lili for her close friend
President Michel Martelly feels that he has every right in the world to call the popular Kiskeya Radio host "Ti Lili". The problem is that Liliane Pierre Paul does not see it that way. She went on the air following the interview to bring some precisions that her name was Liliane Pierre Paul, and for her close frineds, it is acceptable to call her "Lili.
