Critics of Martelly, who performs as Sweet Micky, had called on municipal and federal authorities to block the show, citing what they say are his misogynistic comments and his alleged complicity in corruption scandals.
Martelly had a singing career before entering politics. He served as president of Haiti from 2011-16.
Osias said earlier this week that protests against the concert were being fuelled by Martelly’s political opponents and those who don’t understand that Sweet Micky is a stage persona.
