My love affair started with Lauryn Hill at 6 years old when I convinced my parents to buy my Walkman’s first tape; Fugees’ The Score album. It’s fair to say that with a relationship lasting 20 years, my adoration for her runs pretty deep. However, as much as L-Boogie holds the spot of one of my favourites of all time, a history of hit-and-miss shows – from not showing up to erratic behaviour left my expectations for whenever I was to finally see her live, pretty low. But amongst good vibes brought by the thick crowd of slightly pissed up festival ravers, a stellar warm up show and DJ set, epic surroundings and the knowledge I was about to see one of my favourites ever, even tapered expectations couldn’t dim my excitement when she hit the stage.
