Wyclef Jean SPW Concert Dropped



Plans to bring Wyclef Jean to Colgate for Spring Party Weekend (SPW) were recently abandoned as Colgate was unable to accommodate the performer’s demands, according to Associate Director of the Center for Leadership and Student Involvement Tennille Haynes.

“Although Wyclef Jean was the top choice, he had a difficult rider which we could not comply to and therefore we are moving on to the next pick on the poll,” Haynes said.

The Colgate Activities Board (CAB) is thus attempting to secure a different act for Spring Party Weekend. Haynes declined to specify which artists are still under consideration, but did say CAB was working to take students’ preferences into account.

“We are pursuing selection of a performer based on the recent poll that was conducted by WRCU, SCOPE, CAB and Wefunk,” Haynes said.
