Lauryn Hill is set to return to Nigeria, four months after she failed to appear in the country for an earlier booked show.

The US pop star Lauryn Hill was billed to headline a concert in Lagos, Nigeria but her set was cancelled at the last minute due to a travel disagreement between Lauryn Hill and the show promoter. The singer later went on to apologise to disappointed Nigerian fans in a video which has amassed over a million hits.

But a new concert has been packaged by the same promoter, and the singer is set to hold. The former Fugees star will be live in Lagos on August 30, 2015 at Eko Hotels along with her 20-man live band for a ‘reloaded concert.’
