Watch: Kanye West Headlines at The Glastonbury Festival [Videos]

kanye west at glastonbury

Headliner Kanye West took over the Glastonbury Festival stage in a major way!

The music phenom provided his set of hits like: “Power”, “All Day”, “Stronger”, “N**gas In Paris”, “Mercy”, “Gold Digger”, “Touch The Sky”, “No Church In The Wild” and the list goes on. West literally performed a total of 30 songs…yes, 3-0-songs!

During his festival takeover, Kanye got “Taylor-Swifted” as everyone has been saying, where Comedian Lee Nelson jumped in the middle of Ye’s set, as he was actually making an appearance, with mic in-hand, and a “Lee-zus” tee. In KW fashion, he signaled the sound man to start the track over, once Lee was whisked-off stage right. After, Yeezy immediately goes into acapella mode, until the track comes back in.

Peep the hilarious clip below:

You gotta love the pranks…Lol!

Watch: Lauryn Hill Sings With Her Daughter After Canceled Concert In Nigeria

Lauryn-Hill

 

The show must go on!

Lauryn Hill was scheduled to perform in Nigeria over the weekend but ran into some drama with her party promoter. After waiting hours and hours at the airport, they realized that the show in Nigera would not be happening. She posted a message on your website saying:

 

Hello Lagos, Nigeria! We are disappointed to report that we will not be performing at tonight’s concert. From our end, we did everything we were supposed to do, including waiting at the airport for many hours, ready to fly out and share the evening with you. Unfortunately, after much effort, the promoter was not able to get all of our travel arrangements taken care of. This prevented us from being able to fly into Nigeria in time to make the concert. We were all very excited to come, and very disappointed that we couldn’t make this one. HOWEVER, we are working to reschedule our appearance ASAP. From what we’ve been told, the promoter intends to honor all tickets sold. Our best to and for Lagos. Love and Blessings!

Ms. Lauryn Hill and the MLH band and Production Team

 

Fortunately for the rest of us, she sent a token of her appreciation in a video posted on YouTube of a live acoustic version of her singing “Doo-Wop (That Thing)”. Check out her daughter in the back singing just like her Mama!
