Seun Kuti, the last son of late Afrobeats virtuoso, Fela Kuti, has been nominated for the highly prestigious global music award, The Grammys. The list was published last week Friday on the Grammy Awards’ website.
Seun Kuti was nominated for his album, ‘Black Times’, which was released on March 2, 2018.
According to the Grammy Awards website, the nomination for ‘Best World Music Album’ recognises “albums containing at least 51% playing time of new vocal or instrumental World Music recordings”.
Seun was nominated alongside Bombino (Deran), Fatoumata Diawara (Fenfo), Soweto Gospel Choir (Freedom) and Yiddish Glory (The Lost Songs of World War II) for Best World Music Album.
In another news, Seun Kuti berates Winners Chapel Senior pastor and founder of two private universities, Bishop David Oyedepo, for saying he is “dangerously wealthy”, while preaching in this year’s Shiloh. This attack comes with mix feelings amongst Nigerians, who feel the maestro sax player, Seun, is going too far with his criticism.
