|*LAST YEAR's winner was NICKENSON PRUDHOMME!
*PART 1 is a short resume from us about what went down
*PART 2 shows you the number of votes + WHO voted for them on the 55 Member panel.
*PART 3 are some of the QUOTES from members of our panel FOR THAT CATEGORY.
The award goes to KENNY DESMANGLES!
*This was a tough battle as votes were spread out to many different nominees, however towards the end, Zenglen vocalist KENNY DESMANGLES stood above the rest of the pack. The fact that he is actually THE LEAD SINGER OF HIS BAND, compared to the other nominees, is what at the end gave him the nod as Kompa Magazine's 2007 BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST. Congratulations Kenny.

*QUOTES (Some Quotes from our panel members)
+FABRICE ROUZIER: "Olivier from T-Vice has been around for a while but i truly think that he came through with flying colors this year after a near death experience !!!!. Very close second would be Kenny who took a strong gamble that seems to be paying off."
+MIA LOPEZ (Mia Media/Sakapfet.com): "Olivier stepped up the game on this category... He has proven himself time and time again. From the shy off the shoulder background singer to the Lead Vocalist who can hype up a crowd and take charge, Olivier has propelled T-Vice to a whole other level - one that has definetly gotten other groups noticing."
+JUNIOR HANGOUT: "If people talk about Krezi today, DELICE is a major reason why. What he did on their last caranval was amazing."
+TI MICHEL/TROPIDISC: "From where KENNY DESMANGLES came from before he joined Zenglen, he deserves the award this year."
+ALEX THEBAUD/CARIMI: The artist that had the most impact on that breakthrough list is OLIVIER DURET. Point bar."
+DJ REY: "KENNY DESMANGLES is an artist that struggled to get the public's approval. Now because of Richie, THEY WILL ACCEPT HIM."
+KENSY: "OLIVIER DURET delivered the goods on the TVice CD + he has this politeness about his personality that I like a lot for an artist."
+KEPY RECORD/PERRY: "This one is hard and I'll tell you why. It's between Olivier and Mac D. for me. The only thing that pulls it to Olivier's side is the consistency. He's been consistent since he came to the band and has proven himself to be not only a good performer, he has good stage presence and feels very comfortable on there. A lot of it has to do with fan reception but he's shined this year in terms of new artist. Had Kdans not go through their turmoil and stayed together after that album, Mac D. would of made a bigger impact on the industry as he was the lead singer of K-Dans and the fans received him pretty well but lost respect for him because of the uncertainties he had."
+RICHIE (Was NOT allowed to vote for Kenny): "ROOSEVELT for the work that he did on TI MAFI + he is very talented."
+PRINCE ELLO: This guy ROOSEVELT shocked the hell out of me as a singer, and he is not even the main singer of the group because he's the drummer."
+PIPO: "MEI MEI is a young lady that just burst on the scene who I think will become bigger as she goes along. She sure made a lot of noise in the business for her first year."
+RALPH MENELAS: "Here is a guy that has been overlooked for too long in the market. KENNY DESMANGLES deserves this Breakthrough award for 2007."
+THEO KREYOL LA: KENNY DESMANGLES elevated himself into Gracia Delva's level with that Zenglen Haiti tour."
+TI JOE ZENNY: "KENNY DESMANGLES eklate avek Zenglen. His potential is now more sure because he's in that group. Lots of talent."
+PAPILLON: "Here is a guy that has been on the market for a long time but never got the credit. Now, when he first joined Zenglen, they were still giving him a hard time, NOW tout bagay anfom."
DJ SUPERDUKE: "Olivier Duret ---He might be one of the mian success of the Kitem Viv albuma nd Tvice live stage presence. He really can sign and delivers good stagepresence and Animation . Kinda give Roberto
the break he deserve and focus on his guitar......Samtim Ta kriye was is a great song."
+GLASSES: "OLIVIER DURET got my vote for this one. It looks like he is going to be here for awhile."
+LIONEL BEEPER: In 509, LI PATAP REGLE YON MERDE, ever since he's been with Zenglen, it's a different story. KENNY DESMANGLES gets my vote."
+RULX JEROME/GALAMIX: "KENNY DESMANGLES was not accepted before, NOW yo aksepte'l nan Zenglen. He gets my vote."
SHADINE/HIP MAGAZINE: "MEI MEI (Hangout): No matter how she did it, the result is the same: she stood out of the pack and made people know HER name and not just know her as the new girl in Hangout. People love her, hate her, everyone has something to say about her so she really is a breakthrough artist in that aspect."
+STEPHANES GILLES: "For Breakthrough artist i have to pick Olivier (T-Vice) Olivier was a good addition to T-Vice & he surprised many by bringing a different flavor to T-Vice."
+CAREL PEDRE/RADIO 1 &SPOTLIGHT MAGAZINE: "Delice (Krezi Guitar) just because he's an exellent guitar player. Delice is may be one of the main element of Krezi's succes. His solo in the carnival is the most popular guitar solo for 2007."
+TI LIONEL (Had the choice of picking because 2 members of his band were in the category) "Roosevelt, i think he has impressed more then one by his abilities, both as a drummer and a singer."
+PAPA JUBE: "KENNY DESMANGLES is one of the hottest talent that we have."
