Veteran afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti has said that only four Nigerians have ever been nominated for the Grammy Awards.
In a live IG session with his followers, Seun who is the son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti, dismissed Nigerian artists who claim they have been nominated for the award by way of featuring in a song with an international artiste.
According to him, the four Nigerian artists with Grammy nominations are Burna Boy, his brother Femi Kuti, King Sunny Ade and himself.
”There are only four artists in Nigeria that have ever been nominated for Grammys. I’m one of them. They are only four! Forget all these people you’re attaching on featuring. When you’re featured, you’re not nominated. It’s not your song.
Only four artists! My brother, me, Burna, Sunny Ade.. Finish! No other person in Nigeria. They are not doing it with Nigerian flag.”he said.
