jean claude guillaume dead cancer

Beloved Haitian singer, actor and filmmaker passed away in a Boston hospital earlier today after a long battle with colon cancer. Guillaume was 51.

Last year, we reported that Guillaume was raising money to undergo treatments in Boston. His health had started to improve, but his cancer returned in late 2015.

Our thoughts are with Guillaume’s family, friends and fans during this difficult time.

Here’s the trailer for Jean Claude Guillaume’s latest movie “Fwi Entèdi”
