Afrobeat singer Seun Kuti was scheduled to have performed at the 61st Grammy Awards which ended some hours ago. The ‘Black Times’ album crooner was billed to perform along with his Malian counterpart Fatoumata Diawara.
However, for Nigerians who tuned in to see him perform, none of that happened even though he attended the Grammy awards ceremony. In a new post on Monday, Seun Kuti cited a mix up in his ticket which made him miss his flight and rehearsals.
Due to the circumstance beyond his control, he could not perform as expected. He thanked Fatoumata for holding it down in his absence and also gave a shout out to Soweto Gospel Choir who won the ‘Best World Music Album’, the category he was nominated in.
