Atros Rockfam, Wòklò and Wood Terrib wake up the conscience with “Kilè n’ap comprêt”.

Three rap figures have united their talents to launch a vibrant call for citizen awareness. Stevenson Telfort, aka Atros Rockfam, 27 Wòklò, and Wood Terrib unveiled on May 24 “Kilè n’ap konprann”, a powerful musical work aimed at denouncing the multiple ills that afflict the Haitian people. Available on all streaming platforms, this three-minute song encourages deep reflection on the current socio-political situation and offers avenues for lasting change.

Voices for justice and change

Atros Rockfam, whose real name is Stevenson Telfort, originally from Port-de-Paix, is known for his harsh criticism of the Haitian political system. Through his incisive words, he calls on those responsible for the chaotic situation in Haiti to pull themselves together and work for the well-being of the country. Atros in this song bluntly denounces endemic corruption and urges immediate recovery to put Haiti back on the path to progress.

Furthermore, 27 Wòklò stands out for its commitment to transforming the mentalities and behaviors of young Haitians. In “Kilè n’ap konprann”, he addresses colonial alienation and Haitian-Dominican tensions, particularly around the conflict linked to the construction of the canal on the Massacre River. His vision for a new Haiti involves a reappropriation of Vodou culture and an awareness of serious environmental problems that are often overlooked.

Wood Terrib, whose real name is Wood Baptiste, is known for his committed songs such as “Angajman”. In this new title, he severely criticizes the pseudo-nationalists allied with the imperialists and denounces violations of the Haitian constitution. The artist calls for national awareness to combat the acculturation and depravity of youth, thus encouraging liberation from harmful social practices.

A work for self-liberation

The trio of rappers proposes self-liberation as the main solution, based on awareness of the human dignity of Haitians. They call on their compatriots to renounce social practices that hinder the country’s development and to embrace a new era of responsibility and progress. The song “Kilè n’ap konprann” is more than just a piece of music; it is a manifesto for a profound and lasting transformation of Haitian society.

With this work, Atros, 27 Wòklò and Wood Terrib hope to awaken collective consciousness and encourage their compatriots to take concrete measures for a better future. Their collaboration is a powerful example of the impact music can have in sparking social and political change. By calling for collective self-liberation, they lay the foundations of a new Haiti, where dignity and social justice prevail.

The strong words of “Kilè n’ap konprann” resonate as an urgent call to action, a reminder that the destiny of the nation rests in the hands of its citizens. By denouncing injustices and proposing solutions, Atros27 Wòklò and Wood Terrib show the way to a future where Haiti can finally regain its dignity and autonomy.
