Haitian Born Recording Artist – Wyclef Jean
Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
January 16, 2010 (CUOPM)
The Haitian-born international entertainer, Wyclef Jean is on his way to St. Kitts – Nevis.
Jean boarded the American Airlines Miami flight and is expected to disembark at the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport.
Organisers are baffled over a story in the St. Kitts-Nevis Observer newspaper that the international superstar was being replaced by US-born Jamaican reggae superstar Taurus Riley. Riley is expected to be in St. Kitts on January 23rd.
According to organisers, Wyclef Jean’s appearance at tonight’s (Saturday) Super Rally has been billed as “the largest political event in our Federation’s history” will be held under the theme “˜The Labour Vision.’
“My candidates will tell you of the Labour vision for the next five years ““ our plans, our pledges and our new policies that will continue to deliver prosperity and the opportunity to this wonderful Federation, as well as to its individual constituencies.
Few people will forget the last Labour Super Rally at Warner Park ““ with over 12,000 Kittitians in attendance. But, the Prime Minister believes the event on the 16th will be even more memorable.
“We, the Labour team, invite every Kittitian to come to an unforgettable night on the 16th. This is a night for big ideas: ground-breaking Labour policies that will confirm our islands as the most dynamic, the most vibrant and the most visionary within the entire region.”
And, in a sensational coup for the party, the entertainment for the night will culminate in a free concert by Wyclef Jean ““ one of the most highly regarded and influential musicians of recent years.
“We are delighted that Wyclef has agreed to come and take part in such a special night for Labour. His songs deal with real issues, real politics and real people. I have a great deal of admiration for his work.”
Other entertainment on the night will be provided by local artists ““ and there are also rumours of another performance by RED (Labour’s youth team) who raised the roof in July with their energetic dancing and inspiring speeches.
