A Message to Nigeria from Ms Lauryn Hill

The concert, which was scheduled to take place on May 1 in Nigeria, would have seen Ms. Hill performing alongside a 20-man band. Unfortunately, yesterday via facebook, the artist and her team issued an apology for missing the show. They wrote:

“We are disappointed to report that we will not be performing at tonight’s concert. From our end, we did everything we were supposed to do, including waiting at the airport for many hours, ready to fly out and share the evening with you. Unfortunately, after much effort, the promoter was not able to get all of our travel arrangements taken care of. This prevented us from being able to fly into Nigeria in time to make the concert. We were all very excited to come, and very disappointed that we couldn’t make this one. HOWEVER, we are working to reschedule our appearance ASAP. From what we’ve been told, the promoter intends to honor all tickets sold. Our best to and for Lagos. Love and Blessings!”

On top of the social media apology Lauryn gave an acoustic apology. She says “Hello Lagos. We’re very sorry we couldn’t be there with you tonight. We were at the airport for seven hours yesterday trying to get to you. But we’re gonna make it there, we’re gonna get there,” before playing the Miseducation classic “Doo Wop (That Thing).” I enjoyed this thoroughly. I hadn’t heard L Boogie hit those notes in years. The background vocalist are just as in tune as Lauryn. Very funky. Enjoy the melanin filled clip below:
Peace.
