The Red Carpet And Awards Ceremony Report

HMI Music Awards Haitian Music Awards Izolan

Hundreds of Haitian celebrities gathered at The Westin Diplomat Hotel on Hollywood Beach for the HMI Music Awards, an initiative by entertainment entrepreneur Miss Boss Entertainment. Parker’s Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale had been advertised as the venue for the ceremony, but on the day of the show, the location changed to the beachside venue.

The awards show was highly publicized on social media, and offline with a billboard in a prime location in Fort Lauderdale.

Let’s take a look at how things went down.

Another suede jacket—and a purple one at that–worn by one of the members of the band KZino! A fashion tribute to the late Prince? His counterpart donned somber gray, with a silk tie and navy blue undershirt.
HMI Music Awards Haitian Music Awards Izolan
Rapper Izolan accepted his award from a presenter wearing a strapless, sparkling gold slip dress. The rapper sported a navy blue suit, with a braided belt, with pants that were not quite settled on his waist, as if to say, “I’m dressing respectably, but don’t forget I’m a rapper!” His watch glistened in the evening, and what a bowtie! Probably one of the best-dressed of the night.

A few months ago, the lead singer from Kreyol La T-Djo Zenny played her leading man in the music video for her song “Le’m We’w”.

Blue was definitely one of the most popular colors of the night. Here’s lead singer Emmery from the group Karizma. The band recently released a music video for their song “Debouche’m”.
The HMI Music Awards Haitian Music Awards Mikaben
Here’s singer Mikaben, letting out a slight smile at the awards ceremony. He wore a formal jacket over a white shirt, and sported jeans. His fans are expecting his next album to be on fire, not only music-wise, but marketing-reach-wise, as back in August, the singer-songwriter-producer publicly announced a long-term distribution deal with music label behemoth Warner Music France for four albums.
