Nel Ust Wyclef Jean (Haitian Creole pronunciation: , English: /ˈwaɪklɛf ˈʒɑːn/; born October 17, 1969) is a Haitian musician, record producer and politician.
At age nine, Jean moved to the United States with his family and has spent much of his life in the country.
Jean has cited reggae artist Bigga Haitian as one of his early influences.
Although his birth date was widely given as October 17, 1972, when he filed papers seeking to run as a candidate for the presidency of Haiti, he disclosed that he was in fact three years older.
Which brings us back to Britney Spears – though if you ask some of the Swedes, neither she nor the rest of the aforementioned music royalty are the biggest event to happen in the town.
