"I can't sing forever" - Wyclef Jean (CNN)

We all knew that this was coming someday. According to reports, singer/rapper/producer Wyclef Jean is considering running for president of Haiti.

Wyclef has always rep Haiti from the first day he stepped on the scene and has dedicated lyrics as well as lending a helping hand long before the earthquake struck the nation.

So it comes as no surprise that he would consider penetrating the politics of Haiti by taking on the title as the country's president.

In Wyclef's foundation (Yele Haiti) words,

"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. At this time, Wyclef Jean has not announced his intent to run for Haitian president. If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately."

According to a Canadian newspaper, Wyclef has already filled out the necessary paperwork in case he decides to move forward with a campaign. Haiti's current president has reached his term limit and an election for a new president is scheduled to take place on November 28.
