Lauryn Hill: That Thing acoustic performance released as apology to Nigerian fans

Posted on

Lauryn Hill was scheduled to perform in Nigeria May 1, but travel delays prevented her from making the show—so, as an apology to her Nigeria-based fans, she released an acoustic version of “That Thing” on Facebook.

“We’re very sorry we couldn’t be there with you tonight,” Hill says in the beginning of the video. “We were at the airport for seven hours yesterday trying to get to you. But we’re going to make it there. We’re going to get there. We wish everybody a wonderful evening, and we’re going to leave you with this.” What follows is an acoustic performance complete with five back-up singers—including an enthusiastic (and adorable) little girl. Watch below.
