Fela's Son Seun Kuti To Perform At 2019 Grammy Awards

Seun Kuti, the son of late Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti, is billed to perform at the 61st Grammy Awards scheduled to hold in few day time.

Naija News reports that the Nigerian music star, who was nominated for Best World Music Album will perform with Malian singer/songwriter, Fatoumata Diawara, at the award’s Premiere Ceremony on February 10.

This online news platform understands that the development was contained in a statement published on the Grammys’ website on Thursday.

The statement reads: “The 61st Grammy Awards will start off with sizzle as the lineup for the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony has been revealed, led by Mr Boombastic himself, Grammy winner and current nominee, Shaggy as host.

“The prelude to music’s biggest night will also feature performances by current nominated singer/songwriter Snatam Kaur, trumpeter Craig Morris and dance duo Sofi Tukker.

“Nigerian Afrobeat artist, Seun Kuti and Malian singer/songwriter Fatoumata Diawara will also perform together, and Ángela Aguilar, Aida Cuevas, and Natalia Lafourcade will unite for the first time ever to perform “La Llorona,” a Mexican folkloric classic all three artists have recorded during their career.

“All of the premiere ceremony performers and the host are nominated this year, as are most of the presenters. Kuti & Egypt 80 are nominated for Best World Music Album for ‘Black Times,” the statement added.
