A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that Nigerian musician Seun Kuti, who is the son of legendary afro music icon Fela, was nominated at the 2019 Grammy Awards in the Best World Music Album category for his album “Black Times.”
Even though he didn’t take home the award last night when the event held in Los Angeles, he was in attendance for the event along with his partner Yetunde George Ademuluyi.

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. @lekanbalogun1 @mccoyclothings for making us look really nice on that red carpet @versatilebay for @chefyeide clothes. @egypt80band and our entire team we must keep banging the door till they let us in!! #getthesax
Seun Kuti was also billed to perform at the event.
