After she couldn’t make it to a show she had scheduled in Lagos, Nigeria, Ms. Lauryn Hill offered a special apology. The famed singer uploaded a video, where she apologized for not being able to perform at the May Day Live event. However, she still managed to perform — in some capacity — as she shared an acoustic version of her The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill single “Doo Wop (That Thing).” Along with this musical apology, she also sends out following words:
“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!”
