WYCLEF JEAN PLANS HAITI ‘PEACE’ GIG

Wyclef Jean is planning a gig in his native HAITI as a way of promoting peace.

Proceeds from the show will go towards helping bring stability in the Caribbean country. He said he hoped that up to two million people would be able to see the show.

He said: “I was in Haiti three weeks ago and I was hanging out on the block in the ghettos, in the baddest parts of town, with no security. All that stuff you see on the news recently, with the guns and things, I didn’t see none of that.”

In addition to political violence, the country has suffered economic problems and extreme weather.

Also, Coldplay’s Chris Martin visited the country in 2002, to promote the Make Trade Fair campaign.
