Following the revelation that American singer, Lauryn Hill would not be attending the May Day Live concert at the Eko Hotel and Suites as scheduled, the singer has blamed promoters for her absence.
In a tweet that was linked to an official statement on her website, on Friday, May 1, 2015, the actress cum singer hinted that the management of the show, X-Media Nigeria should be blamed for her absence at the 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," the statement began.
'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! Ms. Lauryn Hill and the MLH band and Production Team,' the statement reads in full.
Following the statement, the X-media Nigeria team have also sent a message blaming the singer's absence on flight issues.
'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 statement reads.
