Lauryn Hill was forced to cancel one of her concerts in Lagos, Nigeria.
She made-up to her fans with this video she posted on Facebook of her performing an acoustic version of “Doo Wop (That Thing).”
Ms. Hill played the guitar while joined by her background singers and daughter Sarah Marley (7) in what appears to be her living room.
She also posted the following message to her Nigerian fans explaining the reason for the cancellation, 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!”
