If this is how she says sorry, Lauryn Hill should make public apology videos more often.
After not being able to make a show in Lagos, Nigeria Ms. Hill took to Facebook with a personal message to her fans. Assuring them that she would be there to perform on a later date, she explained that she had been at the airport for hours.
“Hello, Lagos. Listen, we’re very sorry we couldn’t be there with you tonight,” she said. “We were at the airport for seven hours yesterday, trying to get to you. But we’re gonna make it there, we’re gonna get there. We wish everyone a wonderful evening, and we’re gonna leave you with this.”
Hill then topped off her message with a beautiful acoustic rendition of “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” with her background singers and seven-year-old daughter Sarah Marley. It is also worth noting that she was posted up gorgeously in a swaggy black hat.
She posted the following message on her official site:
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”
