Cape Town - RnB/soul musician Jill Scott will no longer be performing at this year’s Cape Town International Jazz Festival, reports Drum.

According to the reports, the Gettin' in the Way singer was scheduled to perform at the annual jazz festival on March 31.

Drum quoted a letter her management wrote to the organisers which read: "Ms Scott has been offered and accepted a movie role which begins filming at the end of this month.

'Secure another artist'

"The rigorous taping will preclude her from travelling during this time and through the end of April."

The organisers espAfrika were disappointed but said the show would go on without the Grammy winner.
 
"We are in the process of trying to secure another artist, however it is important to note the Cape Town International Jazz Festival features more than 40 world-class acts and is a festival, not a one person performance," the organisers told Drum.
 
The 13th annual Cape Town Jazz Festival kicks off on March 30 and tickets are available from Computicket.com
