We suppose Wyclef Jean can no longer sing his tune “If I Was President” without feeling a little depressed, so the singer is penning new songs to reflect his current situation. Last night Jean posted a new song on his Twitter page, the emotional track “Pou Kepa”, which he sings entirely in Creole. Hear it below.

“This is my new song contesting the CEP, in Creole. We want equal rights and justice!” Wyclef tweeted last night, posting a link to his mellow, heartfelt tune.

Jean planned to appeal the board’s decision to disqualify his run for the Haitian presidency, but that was just shot down by the electoral council. However, the singer-activist isn’t giving up so easily.

“Wyclef does not intend to stop here,” said Jean Renel Senatus, a member of Jean’s legal team. “We will exhaust all options, we will go all the way to fight this unacceptable decision.”
