2019 Grammys: Seun Kuti Loses Out In ‘World Music’ Category
Afrobeat artist, Seun Kuti has failed in his bid to bring home the Grammy awards losing out to South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir.
The choir had previously emerged as Grammy Winners in 2007 and 2008.
The son of the Legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti was hoping to make it a lucky five time for the Kuti family after his older brother Femi Kuti, who was nominated on four occasions but failed to win any.
Femi was nominated in 2003, 2010, 2012 and in 2014 for his album ‘No Place For My Dream’.
Another Nigerian who has also been nominated in the past is King Sunny Ade, who got the nod twice in 1983 and 1988
