A rep for Wyclef Jean is confirming that the former Fugee was shot in the hand while in Haiti.

The emcee who previously wanted to be a nominee for Haitian Presidency, was reportedly shot in Port-au-Prince on Saturday -- on the eve of the country's presidential runoff vote.

His representative Cindy Tanenbaum has released a statement on his behalf saying,

"Wyclef's commitment to his native country and to his people is unparalleled. He is therefore undeterred by this incident."

She adds,

"Wyclef Jean was the victim of a minor gun shot wound last night in Haiti. I have confirmed from Wyclef that he was immediately taken to the hospital, treated for a minor graze to his hand and released.  He is fine."
