Youssou N'dour Named Senegal’s Culture Minister

If you can’t beat ‘em… join their administration. After an unsuccessful bid for president of Senegal, world music icon Youssou N'dour has accepted the post of minister for culture and tourism in President Macky Sall's cabinet.

"It is a great day for Senegal, a great day for Africa... now we can get to work! I am very happy, very moved. It is democracy which has won," N'dour said.
