Music icon Youssou N’dour sets his eyes on Senegal’s Presidency
Youssou N’Dour feels his candidacy to be Senegal’s president can bring the world’s attention to the West African nation’s election at the end of next month.
“Now people are going to pay attention to this election, which is in danger of not being free and fair,” he says.
His critics say he is running for president to protect his businesses.
The Grammy-award winning singer – the golden saxophone statuette sits in a glass display case in his office – has established himself as a fine entrepreneur.
