The Fugees reconnect after a chance meeting

Wyclef Jean has reunited with a former member of The Fugees after finding himself sat next to Pras Michel on a flight to Haiti. 

Speaking to Radio 1's Newsbeat, Jean explained:

"I saw Pras on the flight and as a Fugees member I didn't know whether to elbow him, shoot him or give him a kiss and we gave a hug."

Jean also added:

"The idea that Lauryn is back on the road and she's working is great. It's a great thing and will spark new ideas for all of us."

The ideas, however, are unlikely to spark another reunion as Jean went on to confirm:

"The Fugees are not meant to be. We're rock stars from a locked group."

The band did get back together for a one-off reunion tour but afterward Michel revealed that Lauryn Hill "has some things she needs to deal with" and that The Fugees was "dead".
