Jerome Dayard (Tibob de Nazareth) is married with 3 children. He was born in Jacmel (Haiti) where he completed his primary studies at L’école des Frères de l’Instruction Chrétienne. He completed his secondary education in Port-au-Prince at Centre d’Etudes Secondaires and Saint Louis de Gonzague. Then he entered the United States for his university studies.
He holds a BS degree Actuarial Science/Mathematics, and a Masters degree in International Finance (MBA). He also completed his first Doctoral degree studies in International Business Law.
Poet of high caliber, his several books are real literary chefs-d’oeuvre with topics ranging from adolescent love poetry to the most complex geo-political, philosophical and mystical essays. He has already written over 25 books of which only a few are published.
Tibob is a singer, composer, sound engineer, music video/film producer. He was the lead singer of some top bands of Haiti, including D’Zine.
He owned Nazareth Productions and co-owned NazaFilms. His first solo album released in 2003 “Ou Anndan m” under the Nazareth Label earned him a “place d’élite” in the Haitian Music Industry (HMI). His romantic yet very strong style of singing, coupled with his zouklike soul brings a new sound to the market.
His spiritual conversion to Christianity has initiated a true revolution in the Gospel sector of the HMI. By 2007, he had already released 3 “best seller” Gospel CDs (Istwa Damou, Ban m Fòs, 77×7 Fwa) with several DVDs with a professional clip for each track.
His mesmerizing style of both his artistic performance and spiritual anointment electrify crowds in a way never experienced before. His presence in the Gospel sector is a true motivator to all youth doubting the power of the Lord in the lives of all of those looking for Him.
In 2007-08, Nazareth & Muscadin productions organized Tibob’s first national Gospel Tour in Haiti; a musical “crusade” that attracted more than 100,000 people from all the major cities of the country and thousands came to Christ as a result of his explosive ministry.
