Haiti - Compas Music vs Religion : Why do Haitian musicians abandon Compas Music when they convert into Christianity?

Ayiti - Konpa Mizik kont Relijyon: Poukisa mizisyen ayisyen abandone Konpa lè yo konvèti?
Here is something that I do not understand with Haitian music stars, as soon as they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior (konvèti) they abandon compas music like music is the devil. Why is that?

If you are a Christian, I am know you cannot wait to reply and tell me why but hear me out...

I watch the American Music Awards all the time. Whether it is country music, hip-hop, R&B, Rock and Roll, you name it, the American music stars always thank God first whenever they receive a music award. Aint none of them feel that they are involved in something that is so wrong that they have to abandon it for Jesus.

Who says you have to quit playing compas music just because you are a Christian? Why do Haitian music artists do it?

Where did that come from?

I cannot wait to read your comment about this. Please explain it to me...
