Reacting to this sad disappearance, President Jovenel Moïse declared "A mapou has fallen, and pain is felt in all the lakous. “Konpè Filo”, whose real name is Anthony Pascal, has passed away. We are losing a great promoter of our culture. I bow to his remains and offer my sympathies to his family and fellow travelers."

Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe declared "Se avèk anpil tristès mwen aprann lanmò Anthony Pascal (Konpè Filo). Tout peyi a pèdi M p ap janm bliye epòk Filo te konn keyi grenn Mapou pou mwen. M ap koube m byen ba pou salye travèse li, kouraj li e pou tout sa li te reprezante nan peyizaj kiltirèl Ayiti a. Woukoukou !"
