Okayafrica Video: Watch Ms. Lauryn Hill Make Her Live Debut In Lagos + Vibe w/ The Kutis At Fela's Shrine

It’s no secret that Ms. Lauryn Hill is something of an international treasure; recognized far and wide as a trailblazing leader by any measure in any land. Nothing underscores that recognition like the performance Ms. Hill delivered–and the reaction she received–on her recent appearance in West Africa. At the end of August, the world-famous ex-Fugee took a trip down to Lagos to make good on a heartfelt promise she delivered earlier this year, blazing a stage in Nigeria for a packed house. Our comrades at Okayafrica were there (literally, see below) to capture every moment, including a stop at the famed Shrine to rub elbows with Seun Kuti and the whole Kuti dynasty; descendants of the incomparable Afrobeat king, Fela Kuti.

Watch the lovely Ms. Lauryn Hill run through some of her classic hits and vibe with the Kutis down below and for extra credit, try to spot Okayafrica CEO Abiola Oke repping properly in an OKA tee! The reaction to “Ready Or Not” is worth the price of admission alone. So if you happen to find yourself in Columbia, South Carolina come New Years Eve, be sure to cop a ticket to her show that night for an evening of musical merriments with an absolute legend. Oh, and you should certainly keep your ear to the ground, as some folks have heard murmurs of new material hitting in the months ahead. Just sayin’…
