Grammy award winning artiste and Senegal’s Minister for Culture and Tourism, Youssou N’Dour has been removed from office.

N’Dour was sacked on Sunday, September 8, 2013 after a cabinet re-shuffle by the Senegalese president, Macky Sall.

Sources revealed that N’Dour, the prime minister, Abdoul Mbaye and some other cabinet members were dismissed allegedly for failure in delivering public services to the masses.

The 54-year-old artiste turned politician was named Senegal’s Minister for Culture and Tourism on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 after his bid for presidency failed.

N’Dour has released 27 albums over the past 28 years with his most recent being 2011’s ‘Mbalakh Dafay Wakh’.
