Seun Kuti Apologizes And Explains Why He Didn’t Perform At The Grammys
Last night, Nigerian Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti didn’t perform at the 61st Grammy Awards as earlier announced.
He also lost in his first attempt to win a Grammy award after being
nominated in the best world music album category but lost to South
Africa’s ‘Soweto Gospel Choir’,
Explaining why he was unable to perform on the biggest music awards stage, Seun Kuti wrote, ‘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’.
