Lauryn Hill’s South Africans fans are worried that she might not pitch for her concert in the country in a few weeks
But Big Concerts say they have nothing to worry about.
The Grammy award-winner is scheduled to perform in SA on February 2 for the The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary Tour.
Rapper Nas is also expected to make an appearance.
Music lovers are reportedly hesitant to buy tickets for the show as they are concerned that she will either be late or not show up at all
The Ready or Not hitmaker has a bad reputation for arriving hours late for her concerts.
She started her shows in Brussels and Paris two hours late in November.
Lauryn explained on social media that her team had a “few challenges” during the early shows of the European leg of her tour.
“We’re working through the kinks of moving the production to Europe, with time changes and curfew restrictions, we’ve had a few challenges in these early shows. With deep gratitude I come on stage to perform an album that means so much to so many. Every day we push past inertia to present something sincere. Thank you for coming, supporting and for your patience and understanding,” she wrote.
Her Mzansi fans are crossing fingers that her show in Johannesburg does not have any problems
“They say Lauryn Hill is coming to South Africa this year. I wonder if she’ll show up to shows an hour late and give 20 minute performances again. I love her music but something is not okay with her rn,” one Twitter use wrote.

Another tweep added: “Was excited that Lauryn Hill be coming to SA till I heard she got a slight problem of not attending her own shows or being at least 4 hours late… arg miss me with it.”
But Big Concerts says that Lauryn can’t wait to perform in SA
“Ms. Lauryn Hill is really looking forward to bringing her The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary tour to South Africa. She will be performing with special guest NAS on 2nd February at the Ticketpro Dome and tickets are on sale from Computicket,” CEO Justin van Wyk told TshisaLIVE.
