His family confirmed he passed away surrounded by loved ones at his home. A sad day for Haiti and his family.
The death of Alcibiade, who was a real antidote to stress on the radio airwaves of Radio Caraïbes every Sunday at noon, shocked the nation this Sunday morning.

The magic formula of “Biade,” which was used to correct people’s morals by laughing (correcting morals by laughing), this was the technique of “Biade” who, without question, excelled in the skill of exposing the hypocrisies, follies, and even the most shameful flaws of Haitian society.
Only our sorrow for the loss of this humorist, who spent more than half his life making us laugh, may express. May he rest in peace!
