Washington, August 28 (ANI): Aging sketch series Saturday Night Live is all set to have Olympic golden boy Michael Phelps as host of its 34th-season premiere on September 13 on NBC.

Lil Wayne will be the musical guest, reports E!online.

Wayne is also said to have had the most successful year of his career in 2008.
