PostSubject: US artiste, Lauryn Hill, misses Lagos show, apologises   2015-05-02, 14:55

Nigerian fans and music enthusiasts
were disappointed on Friday night
as US music star, Lauryn Hill, failed
to show up for the much advertised
May Day Live concert in Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports
that the artiste was billed to
perform alongside other Nigerian
musicians like Flavour, Yemi Alade,
Chidinma, Patoranking and DJ
Jimmy Jatt at the Eko Hotel and
The show, which was organised by
‘May Day Live’, then took place
without the American artiste as the
advertised Nigerian artistes took to
the stage in turns to entertain the
Hill, however, posted an 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(as
soon as possible). From what we’ve
been told, the promoter intends to
honour all tickets sold.
“Our best to and for Lagos. Love and
Blessings! Ms. Lauryn Hill and the
MLH band and Production Team.’’
She also posted a video on her
Facebook page, explaining that she
and her crew were at the airport for
seven hours and that they would
definitely make it up to Nigerians
by coming on another date.
In the video titled ‘A Message to
Nigeria from Ms. Lauryn Hill’, she
said, “Hello Lagos, we are very sorry
for not being with you there
tonight, we were at the airport for
seven hours just to try to get to
“We are gonna make it there; we
are gonna get there. We wish
everybody a wonderful evening,’’
she said with a few members of her
band and child behind her before
they sang.
The organisers also released a
statement promising to have the
artiste in Nigeria on a new date.
The statement read, “Due to Ms
Lauryn Hill’s flight issues, the
organisers of May Day Live and Ms
Lauryn Hill management have
concluded to postpone the show. A
new date will be communicated
“All tickets bought will be used for
the new concert date. Meanwhile, a
party will still hold today at Eko
Hotel, starting from 7pm. Feel free
to come and party as no tickets are
“The organisers of May Day Live
apologise for any inconveniences.’’
However, a member of the
organising committee, who
pleaded anonymity, told NAN that
Lauryn Hill and her 22-man band
missed two different flights,
expressing disappointment in the
actions of the artiste.
