Ms. Lauryn Hill was forced to cancel one of her concerts in Lagos, Nigeria. As a makeup to her fans, she posted a video on Facebook of her performing an acoustic version of her Miseducation hit “Doo Wop (That Thing).” A smiling Ms. Hill played the guitar while joined by her background singers and 7-year-old daughter Sarah Marley in what appears to be her living room.
She also posted the following message to her Nigerian fans explaining the reason for the cancelation, and promised to reschedule the show.
“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!”
