Wyclef Jean has written and recorded a new song, “Pou Kepa,” in response to the news that he’s been rejected as a candidate for the Haitian presidency by the country’s electoral council.
Wyclef has vowed to pursue other options to fight the decision. “This is my new song contesting the CEP, in Creole,” the rapper tweeted. “We want equal rights and justice.”
You’ll have to speak Creole to understand it, but the emotion it contains is universal.
