Looks like Wyclef Jean isn't the only musician with political aspirations!

Grammy winning musician Youssou Ndour has announced plans to run for president in Senegal next month.

He's already been been doing his part to improve the country by highlighting corruption in both his radio station and newspaper…….and now he's ready to take things to the next level.

Here's what he had to say about his decision to run for president:

"For a very long time, many Senegalese of different backgrounds have called for my candidacy for the presidency next February. I’ve listened, I’ve heard and I am responding favorably to their request. I am a candidate. It’s a supreme patriotic duty, the best I can give of myself. I am the alternative to the current leadership in place in the country."

Definitely sounds to us like he's got the country's best interest in mind!

We wish him luck!
