The Miseducated Lauryn Hill

Songs of abuse, greed and brain washing done by people who oppressed her people was a theme in most of her songs. The artistes who sold millions of records on her first and only album produced by the Fugees and then sold a few more millions from her solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was here in Dubai and I had to go and see her in concert.

Her voice is like no other and I wanted to be as close as possible to listen to this amazing instrument of nature, so I bought front row tickets, even though she was going sing for around one hour only, starting at 9 p.m.

Before she started Karl Wolf was going to sing and although I have seen his name around in the local papers I have never heard him sing. All I know is he made a music video in Oman and the song he remixed used parts form the song Africa.

Although we arrive at 8:20 it took us nearly 40 minutes to get in, even though we had tickets due to the unorganized event management. So here we are rushing in only to find out that Karl Wolf is coming on in 15 minutes. To be fair he was amazing and really impressed the audience with his Arabic influence music. He surly won me as a fan.

After Karl Wolf the DJ came on and would not stop mixing. People started to complain and he kept saying that Lauryn Hill was coming in a few minutes which seemed forever… when people started booing, we thought of leaving because it was already midnight.

Just before she came on the DJ announces that Lauryn Hill was in Italy the day before, she nearly missed her flight because of over booking and she has a soar throat but she still deiced to go ahead and put a show for Dubai, before heading to France, so ‘ lets give it up for her’

All I can say is ‘I gave up on her’. She should change her album from Miseducation of Lauryn Hill to the Misedcuated Laurtn Hill and she should be ashamed of singing songs of abuse and brain wash since she did the same to her fans because of her greed for money. We left after she sang 2 songs only since she sounded like broken car muffler.
