L Boog was originally scheduled for a performance in Lagos, Nigeria on May 1st – for a version of Nigeria’s May Day Live Concert, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the former Fugee had to cancel those plans.
In a move to both apologize to fans and give thanks and praise to the people of Nigeria, she hopped on YouTube for a special, exclusive acoustic performance of “Doo Wop (That Thing)” off her debut LP.
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!
