After not being able to make it to Nigeria for a show she was scheduled to perform at, Lauryn Hill took matters into her own hands and directly apologized to her fans with a thoughtful acoustic version of “Doo-Wop (That Thing),” alongside backup singers The Organizers Of MayDay as she played the guitar.
“Hello, Lagos. Listen, 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. We wish everyone a wonderful evening, and we’re gonna leave you with this.”
Although it was not her fault that she could not make it, there will be a show scheduled at a later date.
Ms. Hill put the following message on her official site:
Hello Lagos, Nigeria! 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!
Ms. Lauryn Hill and the MLH band and Production Team
