Truth : Mikaben Did NOT Die From Vaccine Sudden Death!
It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why, and what we know so far…
Fact #1 : Mikaben’s Cause Of Death Was Cardiac Arrest
Haitian singer, Mikaben (born Michael Benjamin on June 27, 1981) collapsed during a concert at the Accor Arena in Paris, and passed away on Saturday, October 15, 2022.
After finishing a performance with the Haitian kompa band CaRiMi, Mikaben was walking to the back of the stage when he suddenly collapsed hard onto the stage.
Emergency medical services tried but failed to revive him, as reported by the Accor Arena team (with English machine translation) :
Hier soir lors du concert de Carimi, l’un des chanteurs, Michael Benjamin, Mikaben de son nom d’artiste est décédé suite à un malaise survenu sur scène et malgré l’intervention des secours.
Last night during the Carimi concert, one of the singers, Michael Benjamin, known professionally as Mikaben died following a malaise on stage and despite the intervention of the emergency services.
On Tuesday, October 18, 2022, a representative for Mikaben confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the singer died of a cardiac arrest.
There is no evidence that Mikaben’s sudden death had anything to do with COVID-19 vaccines. He died from a cardiac arrest, not the vaccine.
Fact #2 : Mikaben Was Perfectly Healthy Until His Sudden Collapse
Videos recorded during the CaRiMi concert showed that the Haitian artist was in good health as he sang for his fans.
That rules out the possibility (and false claims) that he was suffering from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccines.
Yes, mRNA vaccines can cause myocarditis, but Mikaben would be breathless and be experiencing chest pains and fatigue. He would hardly be in a condition to sing at a concert.
The video of his collapse showed that he was walking normally towards the band when he suddenly collapsed, like a switch had been turned off – a classic sign of a cardiac arrest.
Fact #3 : Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is Common + Often Fatal
Despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause sudden cardiac arrest. People have been dying from sudden cardiac arrest long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!
In fact, sudden cardiac arrest in relatively young adults is common, especially during strenuous activities and they are often fatal.
Approximately 356,000 adults suffer from sudden cardiac arrest every year in the United States, 90% of which are fatal. Globally, roughly 8.3 million people will suffer from sudden cardiac arrests every year.
That’s why many states in the United States enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.
Fact #4 : Mikaben’s Wife Did Not Blame Vaccine
Oh mon Dieu, Heavenly Father, I know you don’t make mistakes and you won’t give us what we can’t bare but…this pain is very heavy. Help me please oh merciful Lord.
#monMikaseigneur #mytruelove❤️ #myotherhalf❤️ #thefatherofmykids #mybestfeiend
I WILL NOT QUESTION YOU GOD. PLEASE HELP ME, I’M DROWNING IN THIS SORROW
She also warned his fans about fraudulent GoFundMe accounts set up in Mikaben’s name.
Be aware of fraudulent GoFundMe accounts set up on Mikabens’ behalf. These accounts were not set up or authorized by the family.
If Mikaben did indeed die from COVID-19 vaccination, his wife would have mentioned it in her Instagram posts, if not be outraged by that.
But at no point in time did she ever blame the COVID-19 vaccines for her husband’s deaths.
Fact #5 : Mikaben Was Likely Fully Vaccinated
It is currently unknown if Mikaben was vaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in Haiti, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.
However, I believe Mikaben was likely fully-vaccinated because Wyclef Jean shared that he hung out with Mikaben when they were in New York together for the Bayo musical tour in May 2022.
Bayo concert producer Michael Brun brought Wyclef Jean as a special guest, and he later brought Mikaben and the other artists out for a jam session.
Although COVID-19 vaccination is not mandatory in the United States, travellers are required to be fully-vaccinated to enter, although there are exemptions to that rule.
Unless his family reveals his vaccination status, we will never know for sure, but it is highly likely that Mikaben was fully-vaccinated.
Fact #6 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days
Even if Mikaben was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he definitely received his vaccine doses many months ago.
He cannot possibly have died from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not many months later.
Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.
The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.
Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.
Fact #7 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False
This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.
So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.
