Last night was the Lauryn Hill Live in Lagos concert and it was held at Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island.
One of the most excited people to attend the event was music star Waje who happens to be a huge fan of Lauryn Hill. According to Waje, Lauryn Hill’s songs helped her learn how to sing so she was quite ecstatic to meet Lauryn Hill last night.
She shared her experience on Instagram saying:
Just before the show started a beautiful lady walked up to me telling me how much she loved my music, in her words “we’ve been playing you songs in philly ” , this sister sang the chorus of No Be You and I was blown away by her voice, soon I realized she was Lauryns backup singer. My life changed last night. I cried when Lauryn was performing and thinking, in my life time I see woman wey I use her songs learn work!!!!! She killed it! She gave me music life! So I got home and next thing my phone rings “waje Lauryn wants to meet u? I ran back like I was going to collect the certificate that validates the school of music life I have been in since, she took my hand and I cried all thru…… I’m so sure I embarrassed her but i had to tell her how grateful I am. Thank you Lauryn for music… Long story short, do your own with diligence and authenticity and you will save lives, inspire people to reach their goals as she inspired many singers and musicians. I’m so honored. Shout out to my sis @jbeautifull
