Ever since the start of Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation 20th anniversary tour in June, she has brought in multiple acts, such as SZA, Busta Rhymes, Santigold and Nas. However, some Portland fans were set to see Santigold and Nas on Wednesday opening for Ms. Hill, but it turned out they were a no-show. It’s alleged that Ms. Hill took them off the concert schedule that night.
Santigold took to Twitter to explain her reasoning for not being at the show.
I’m sorry you paid to see us and we’re not there. That really bums me out. I’m also bummed that @MsLaurynHill and crew didn’t tell ppl why we’re not there. She took us off the bill.

Santigold went on to say that Lauryn’s management team sent out a note reading “Due to production issues, The Miseducation 20th Anniversary Tour is unable to accommodate Santigold’s performance this evening.”
Ms. Hill’s team has yet to respond to the speculations.
