I’m sure some you will recall the late spring, when Lauryn Hill offered the country of Nigeria a heartfelt musical consolation for having to cancel her very first show in Lagos after the hired promotional team failed to come through with travel arrangements. Well, it looks like Lagos will finally have their day with the queen, who will officially be rocking live and direct with her soul and funk-strutting ensemble this Sunday, August 30th at the Eko Hotel, with Nigerian comedian¬†Basketmouth¬†hosting the night’s affair. And if you’re on our side of the pond, fret not, as there are still plenty of opportunities to see Miss Hill stateside, the dates for which are listed below.
