Wyclef Jean Shot in Haiti, Recovering from Hand Wound

March 20, 2011  |  

Just one day before Haiti’s presidential election, singer/rapper/ producer Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand in his home country. The incident took place in Port-au-Prince. The Grammy award winning artist was in Haiti to campaign on behalf of presidential candidate Michell Martelly. Wyclef was once a candidate for Haiti’s  presidential election himself, but was kicked off of the ballot due to residency requirements. The singer’s charity foundation Yele was one of the first organizations on the ground after Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake.

Details of the circumstances surrounding the shooting are still unclear, but Wyclef’s publicist said that the wound was superficial and that Wyclef has been released from the hospital.

Do you think Wyclef will run for president again?
