Wow, I think Jamaican artistes should take a page out wyclef_2.jpgWyclef's book and set the trend for a better Jamaica.

Wyclef Jean has recorded a radio message asking people in the country to give up crime. "If you love Wyclef that means you love Haiti," he said in Creole in a short ad run by local stations in the nation. "So you should not be raping women, kidnapping people and children. There can be no excuse for doing so." "I reject these evil practices," said Jean in his message, in which he also urged Haitian men to respect women's rights.

Jean, 35, was made a roving ambassador for Haitilast year by President Rene Preval. His message was supported by the UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti, the poorest nation in the Americas. Kidnapping is rife in the Caribbean republic, with 36 people abducted in the capital city Port-au-Prince during March alone.

Jean was born in Haiti in 1972 but moved with his family to New York when he was nine years old. The award-winning musician provides humanitarian aid and assistance through his Yele Haiti foundation.
