The Singer & Keyboardist "Sweet Micky" had another nickname "Tete Kale". 'Compas' is one form of Haitian dance-music, sung mostly in the Creole language. "Kompa" was there in the Haitian music since its emergence but developed into a modern pop style by Nemours Jean-Baptiste in 1955. Martelly, a singer and keyboard specialist while popularizing 'Compas' to a new generation style with smaller bands relying more on electronic instruments and synthesizers, proclaimed himself as the "President of Compas".

Between 1989 and 2008, he has recorded a number of live CDs and fourteen studio albums and had maintained a busy touring schedule. His first single "Ooo La La" was an instant it and that was followed by "Konpas Foret des Pins" and debut album "Woule Woule", both released in 1989.
Once he told New Times, his music was never political, he has always tried to make people laugh and have fun. 'Sweet Micky' is still performing but now, as a President.
