Lauryn Hill Blames Promoters For Missing ‘May Day Live’ Concert In Lagos


Lauryn Hill‘s May Day Live Concert billed to hold Friday 1 May, has been cancelled.
The multiple-Grammy Award winning artiste has released a statement on her website,, explaining reasons why she and her entourage (the MLH band and Production Team) couldn’t be in Lagos for the May Day Live concert.

The ex-Fugees vocalist blamed the show promoters for missing the well-advertises concert.
“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!”
In the same vein, organizers of the concert, on Friday night released their own statement concerning the show.
“Due to Ms Lauryn Hill‘s flight issues, the organizers of May Day Live and Ms Lauryn Hill management have concluded to postpone the show. A new date will be communicated soon. 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 required.
The organizers of May Day Live apologize for any inconvenience.”
