Wyclef Jean Talks Lauryn Hill, the Yele Haiti Controversy, and Chris Christie - The Daily Beast

Wyclef Jean, the 45-year-old music maestro, has dabbled in many things. He served as the leader of the Fugees, a Jersey hip-hop group that also featured Lauryn Hill and Pras; he’s a Grammy winning solo artist who’s responsible for hits like “Gone Till November” and “Hips Don’t Lie,” with Shakira; and the Haitian émigré even attempted to run for President of Haiti in 2010, only to see his candidacy stripped because he hadn’t met the country’s 5-year residential requirement.Over the years, Wyclef has also been involved in numerous charity endeavors—the most controversial of which, of course, being Yele Haiti, the chairty organization he founded that provided relief during the 2010 earthquake that ravaged Haiti, but later shuttered its doors in the wake of a string of controversies, ranging from allegations of mismanaged funds to failure to file IRS returns from 2005-2009. via - The Daily Beast
