Haitian Singer Ti Joe Zenny sings about Loneliness

Haitian Singer Ti Joe Zenny sings about Loneliness

I am lonely... Take a look at my life everyday and you will think everything is OK, a smile on my face every morning, sometimes the whole day and yet I often fee miserable.

There is emptiness in my heart, I am missing something. I am lonely... I feel tormented, I have no one to talk to.

These are some words from the lirycs of the song "Mwen pou ko m" by Haitian singer Joseph Zenny Jr, alias Ti Joe Zenny (Kreyol La)

Music: Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill turned down $90 million Fugees reunion offer, Pras said (VIDEO)

Can you believe this? The Fugees were offered $90 million to go on the road for 15 months. Pras Michel said when he approached Lauren Hill and Wyclef Jean they turned it down.

Watch this video of an interview Pras gave to Ebro Darden over at Hot 97. FUGEES Reunion? Pras says "NO, I don't want no part of that."

To go back in to the Fugees, is like going into a rabbit hole, Pras said. The emotional roller coaster is just too much.

Pras says he's outgrown all that but it was a great moment and he will be forever grateful for both Wyclef Jean and Lauren Hill.

David Rudder - Haiti I am Sorry

David Rudder - Haiti I am Sorry

In 1988, Calypso singer David Rudder of Trinidad & Tobago, produced the classic calypso song "Haiti, I'm sorry".

In the chorus he sang :

Haiti, I'm sorry
We misunderstood you
One day we'll turn our heads
And look inside you
Haiti, I'm sorry. Haiti, I'm sorry
One day we'll turn our heads
Restore your glory.

Today, many all over the world can identify with Rudder's core sentiment, 'Haiti, I'm sorry', even if they do not buy into his argument. For Rudder had maintained that : "Toussaint was a mighty man/And to make matters worse he was black/Black and back in the days when black men knew/Their place was in the back/But this rebel, he walked through Napoleon/Who thought it wasn't very nice/And so today my brothers in Haiti/They still pay the price...yeah, yeah..."
