Wyclef Jean has reportedly been stopped in his bid to become President of Haiti.
The former Fugees frontman is ineligible to stand for the job, according to news agency Reuters.
Rules state that candidates must have lived in the country for at least five years leading up to the election.
Earlier this week Wyclef met the current President of Haiti- which has massive levels of poverty and saw 230,000 people killed in an earthquake this January.
The singer also claimed he’s been in hiding over death threats relating to his presidential campaign.
