#GrammyAwards2019: Seun Kuti Loses Out To Soweto Gospel Choir in The ‘World Music Award’ Category
Nigerian musician and the youngest son of legendary afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti has failed in his bid to bring home the Grammy awards losing out to South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir.
Nominated for his 2018 released album, ”Black Times’‘, Seun Kuti loses out to South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir who in the process grabbed their third Grammy Awards for the album ‘‘Freedom’‘, in a category that had the likes of Bombino from Niger, Mali’s Fatoumata Diawara and Soviet’s Yiddish Glory.
This is the fifth time a Kuti has been nominated for the Grammys. The older Femi Kuti has been nominated four times in 2003, 2010, 2012 and in 2014 for his album ‘No Place For My Dream’.
