Who Is Haitian Artist Oswald?
Oswald began to sing at a very young age. He would sing everywhere and affirmed, « it is an automatism ». At the age of 13 he became an orphan and was forced to go live with a foster family.

The apotheosis of his career was confirmed when he was invited to perform along with other big names such as Ralph Tamar, Tania Saint-Val, Dominique Coco, and Martine Sylvestre, in the first part of the tribute concert to George Benson, the famous American guitarist, singer and composer, in Guadeloupe, in December 2007. That same year, Oswald released his first Maxi single called ” My life ” composed of four titles of soul and R&b recorded in Yard Studio in Saint-Martin.
