Lauryn Hill and Wyclef to Perform at Ragamuffin Festival

Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean

Former Fugees Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill are scheduled to perform at a music festival in New Zealand, in January, according to reports.

Though the estranged former groupmates (and rumored lovers) are scheduled to perform separate sets at the Ragamuffin Music Festival, in Rotorua, New Zealand on Jan. 23, it will mark the first time they’ve shared a stage in years.

The co-booking is also notable given ‘Clef’s recent comments regarding a potential Fugees reunion. “Somehow, The Fugees is the soundtrack to everyone’s house,” Wyclef said in an interview with “What I’m hoping is that this group really gets inspired by the new movement that I’m on right now. I’m hoping they’ll get inspired and be like, ‘Yo, let’s find Clef and let’s get this thing cracking.’ And it would be an honor to go in and make it a super album.”

The Ragamuffin Festival will be Hill’s first performance since she canceled her 2009 tour in June, citing health reasons. Wyclef filled in those dates, headlining the prestigious Stockholm and Montreux Jazz Festivals.

Though the Fugees only released two albums, their second release, ‘The Score,’ has sold over 20 million copies worldwide, and a followup has been highly-anticipated/allegedly in the works for years.

The Ragamuffin Festival also boasts performances by Julian Marley, Sly & Robbie, Sean Kingston, Shaggy and many more.
