Thousands attending fundraiser told to go home; rapper finally shows up over 2 hours later.
Harvard University had to cancel a concert by Fabolous after he arrived 2 1/2 hours late, causing disappointment to waiting fans and an agreement by the rapper to return the school’s deposit.
The rapper’s call time was 9 p.m. for the 15th Annual Eleganza Fashion Show, a fundraiser for Boston charities that work with underserved urban youth. At 10:45, when Fab still hadn’t shown up, organizers told the 1500 fans in attendance to go on home.
At 11:30, Fab and his crew finally arrived to an empty venue, saying his tardiness was due to a prior engagement at Brown University that ran long, according to Allhiphop.com.
Reps for the rapper admitted to being at fault and returned half of the deposit on Saturday, while agreeing to pay the remaining balance this week.
The annual Eleganza Fashion Show is aimed at celebrating cultural diversity on the Ivy League school’s campus.
