Wyclef Jean is making headlines after announcing that he’s considering running for President of his native country of Haiti.

The Yele Haiti head has reportedly been considering a bid for presidency since 2007 when he was made ambassador-at-large for the country.

Now with the 2010 election on the horizon and President Rene Preval unable to seek reelection, Clef has released a statement to media saying,

“Wyclef’s commitment to his homeland and its youth is boundless, and he will remain its greatest supporter regardless of whether he is part of the government moving forward … If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately.”


When he was contacted by CNN for confirmation, the former Fugee would not release details but said,

“I can’t sing forever.”
