2019 Grammys: Seun Kuti Loses Out to Soweto Choir in ‘World Music’ Category

On Sunday night, the 36 year old and son of late Fela Anikulapo Kuti lost out in the ‘World Music Award’ category at the 2019 Grammys.

Nominated for his 2018 released album, ”Black Times”, Seun Kuti lost to South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir who 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.

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.
