Lauryn Hill performs acoustic version of ‘Doo Wop’ for as nice “sorry I missed it” bribe for Nigerian fans
Fans in Nigeria had looked forward to the much hyped Lauryn Hill concert scheduled to take place on Saturday May 2, in Lagos. Unfortunately, the former Fugees rapper could not make it to the country at the last minute and had to abruptly cancel.
As a way of apology and to make it up to her fans, Lauryn Hill performed a special acoustic performance of “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in a Youtube clip, along with her 7-year-old daughter Sarah Marley and other back-up singers.
Lauryn Hill posted her apology on her website saying;
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”
