Reporting coming from Haiti Press Network (HPN) is that Boereau is a Haitian student but since entering the competition has become the darling of the Taiwanese public through this high-profile program in Asia.
"Super Idol" is a song contest that is looking for new talent in Taiwan (like American Idol). The show is broadcasted on many television channels in Taiwan and other Asian stations.
Claude Marcus is the only black participant in this competition. Aged 22, he received a scholarship in 2008 following a competition organized by the Embassy of Taiwan in Haiti.
"I always watched the show in previous years because it is very popular here, I had to take Intensive Chinese to participate. In fact, my biggest obstacle is to compete in a language that is difficult, I've learned for just one year." "More than 5,000 people were interviewed," continued Claude.
"After the three knock-out stages, 36 were selected for the sixth edition of Super Idol. Now I'm already among the 15 finalists and I'm too happy with this great result," said Claude to the Haiti Press Network.
