Lauryn Hill performing in Nigeria with daughter Sarah Marley is the coolest thing ever

Songstress Lauryn Hill finally made it to Lagos after last year's last minute cancellation. If you didn't hear about it, read more about the 11th hour change and her subsequent acoustic apology here

The Grammy Award winning singer breezed through a bunch of her hits even though her show started hella late - it seems like it was worth it for the audience in attendance.

Peep the video below to see Sarah onstage with her Momma
After giving us one of the greatest works of art ever created in the last 25 years, Miss Lauryn Hill's greatness needs no introduction. People often deride her for her late shows, in some cases bad sound or performances of unrecognizable songs. I haven't witnessed any of these things to confirm, nor will I deny they happened, one thing was sure, she gave Nigeria everything she had last night. It's not hyperbole when I say it was simply DIVINE! To quote Talib Kweli, "Lauryn Hill gave us two Fugees albums, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill and MTV Unplugged 2.0. How arrogant would I be to say she owed me anything? What kind of self absorbed, entitled nonsense is that?" That said I feel sorry for all the people that left early. This made Arik Air postponing my flight a bit more tolerable. #MissLaurynHill #LaurynHill
