New York, Aug 21: Haiti-born hip hop star Wyclef Jean, who had filed for candidacy in the presidential elections in that country, has not made it to the final list as he lives in New Jersey in the US and not in the Caribbean island.
The singer-songwriter did not satisfy legal requirements to contest in his native country’s presidential election, people.com reported.
“He is not on the list as I speak,” said an official, whose identity was not revealed.
Jean had left Haiti at the age of nine, to stay in Brooklyn, New York.
Haiti was devastated by an earthquake in January.
