It’s the 4th time he’s been nominated for the Grammys and unfortunately, the 4th time he loses out of the prestigious award.
He lost the award to a tie between winners Gipsy Kings and Ladysmith Black Mambazo and was presented by veteran singer Cynthia Lauper prior to the actual Grammy Award ceremony.The Nigerian Afrobeat singer, saxophonist and son of the legendary Fela Kuti was nominated in the ‘World Music’ category for his album ‘No Place For My Dream‘ album.
He was previously nominated in 2003, 2010, and in 2011.
No worries though, a lot of artists will kill to be nominated 4 times, and he’s still a winner in our book.
