Star finds Gombeys a tweet

Wyclef Jean rocked the America's Cup in Bermuda on Saturday night — and his social media followers around the world know it.

Not long after performing, Wyclef posted a video of representatives from H & H Gombeys and Gombey Evolution, who also took the stage at the opening ceremony.

Along with the video, he wrote: “Warriors, you know I always show a piece of the real culture everywhere I go. This was beautiful!”

Wyclef however did not stick around for long — he wrote on social media yesterday morning that he was leaving the island for a performance on the West Coast.

Born in Haiti, Wyclef achieved international fame performing with the Fugees before embarking on a solo career. He has also made a name for himself as a producer, working with Destiny's Child, Shakira and Lionel Richie among others.

Wyclef is also no stranger to Bermuda, having performed here previously as part of the 2009 Bermuda Music Festival.
