In an exclusive interview with Juno7, the Haitian-American singer of international renown, Wyclef Jean, talk about why he kept his distance from Haiti, despite his love for his homeland.

It is important to protect yourself by washing your hands and observing social distance on the streets. My drummer Don Juan lost his mother three days after his father died. My wife lost an uncle, my business manager’s sister is dead and I had an uncle who passed from life to death, “said the star.

Jean also has a touch of regret for his misadventure in politics. The famous singer claims that he has never seen himself in politics or even candidate for the presidency.
