Haiti — Busta Rhymes and the Fugees are scheduled to perform tonight in Haiti for a concert leading up to the presidential election which Michel Martelly is expected to win.

The concert, which will include songstress Lauryn Hill performing with her former band members, Pras and Wyclef Jean, was organized by Jimmy Rosemond and Jean. Close to 200,000 people are expected to converge on the Champs De Mars for the concert.

In regards to the Wyclef Jean stated, “It’s a new era in Haiti and we are campaigning for change for good in my beloved country. I had to come home as a diaspora to make a difference.” Jimmy Rosemond chimed in, “No change comes easy especially in these trying times for the Haitian population but I had to come to encourage voting for that change. As the diaspora becomes more involved with Haiti there can’t be nothing but good change.”
