Lots of Nigerians and fans of Seun Kuti were disappointed after the singer did not perform at the just concluded 61st Grammy Awards as he was scheduled.

Prior to the 2019 Grammy Awards the Seun Kuti was announced to perform alongside with Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara. However, due to a mix up with his ticket and eventual missing of his flight he was unable to arrive in time for rehearsals ahead of his scheduled performance.

The Afrobeat singer took to Instagram to formally apologize.

“First and foremost I have to say I am sorry to all the fans that tuned in to see us perform yesterday but didn’t. I had the weirdest ticket mix up in history meaning I missed my flight and the rehearsals and we couldn’t go on. Big up to Soweto Gospel choir a group that has also inspired me. @fatoumata_diawara__ for holding down our show without me.”
