According to Erykah Badu's management, a fake promoter has been attempting to book the singer for expense gigs around the world. Unfortunately, the imposter has already duped fans for an upcoming show.

An official press release confirms that Erykah Badu will not be performing at the International Roots Homecoming Festival in Gambia.

"Despite recent media reports that indicated otherwise, recording artist Erykah Badu is not booked to participate in the 11th Edition of the Roots Homecoming Festival in Gambia. Event organizers mistakenly believed Ms. Badu to be confirmed due to false representation and claims from a third party unaffiliated with Ms. Badu and her management. All marketing and advertising materials promoting the festival featuring her likeness were done without Ms. Badu's knowledge or consent."
