Wyclef Jean Breaking News and Photos
Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand on Saturday (March 19) in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
The 41-year-old entertainer and former presidential hopeful was taken to the hospital after the scary incident, which took place on the eve of Haiti’s presidential elections.
“He was released from the hospital [and is] fine now,” his rep told the Wall Street Journal, adding that Wyclef was released after a few hours and that the shot “just grazed his hand”.
Scary – but glad Wyclef is okay!!
The 40-year-old entertainer and activist spliced video of young people in Haiti still struggling to find normalcy after the devastating earthquake from earlier this year.
“Election Time” is just one track from Wyclef‘s new 6-song EP, If I Were President: My Haitian Experience, which will be available on December 7.
Wyclef Jean – ‘Election Time’
Wyclef Jean is heading back to the studio after running for the Haitian presidency – and he’s singing about the people of his homeland in “Election Time”!
The 41-year-old entertainer sings, “Election time around the corner, who you gonna vote for? Election time around the corner, what you gonna fight for?” on the new track.
“If I was president, the first thing I would do is get my people out the tents,” he added, referencing the displacement of residents from their homes after the massive earthquake.
If I Were President: My Haitian Experience will hit shelves early next year!

Wyclef Jean has withdrawn his candidacy for the Haitian presidency.
“After weeks of quiet but painstaking reflection with my wife and daughter, I have chosen to end my bid for the presidency of Haiti,” Wyclef, 40, said in a statement (via CBS News). “This was not an easy conclusion to reach; but it is one that was thoughtfully made, taking into account many, many competing factors and weighing the course that will best advance the healing of the country and help it find the quickest path to recovery.”
“Though my run for the presidency was cut short, in this way, I feel it was not in vain,” Wyclef continued. “It’s something we can use to improve conditions for my Haitian brothers and sisters.”
At a concert on Friday, Wyclef slammed Sean during one of his songs, accusing him of “sniffing cocaine.”
The accusations are not true, according to his rep.
“Mr. Jean is clearly unfamiliar with the physical demands put upon volunteers in Haiti,” Sean‘s rep tells JustJared.com. “As aid workers there, the notion of depleting the body’s immune system thru the use of illicit drugs is ludicrous. More specifically, J/P Haitian Relief Organization (a.k.a. JPHRO) has a ZERO tolerance policy for any and all illegal drugs. As the leader of this organization, Sean Penn has not only set this policy, but adheres to it. That Mr. Jean would make such a false accusation is reckless and saddening, but not surprising.”
Shouldn’t we be worrying about Haiti’s problems rather than picking a fight?
