Elephant Man Concert in Haiti, December 9

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht) - Dancehall Reggae Artist Elephant Man will be in Haiti Friday for a concert at Parc Midore, his second concert in the country.

Elephant Man also known as Energy God had his first concert in Haiti back in December 2008. For that show he brought along another artist, Red Rat.

These concerts have been organized by BrothersDredProd who reward fans by putting on these spectacular events. Last time all the rastas in Haiti were present and they feel it will be the same thing this time around.

Elephant Man, whose real name is O'Neil Bryan Hughlin Morgan, was born in Jamaica. He has been criticized for his words calling for violence against homosexuals but managed, in 2003, to sell 2 million albums of his world premier album "Good to Go".

Good to Go featured many other superstars including Janet Jackson, Will Smith, Lil 'Jon, Pitbull, Missy Elliot, and R. Kelly.
