Seun Kuti also lost out 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’.
On his Instagram page, 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.
“Our entire team we must keep banging the door till they let us in.”
