The performer who attended the event with his wife was nominated in the best world music album category.

Kuti, alongside Fatoumata Diawara, Bombino and Yiddish Glory, lost to South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir.

The 61st Recording Academy award ceremony took place on Sunday at Staples Centre, Los Angeles, California.

Seun Kuti, 36, was nominated alongside the Egypt 80 band for his ‘Black Times’ album.

Following his nomination, he had said: “I really hope we will also win. This album is my best work. Just like my shows, I make sure that my last album has to be my best album.”

The ‘Black Times’ album was released in March and it earned him his first ever entry on the Billboard music charts.

The Afrobeat star was one of the performers at Sunday’s showpiece, taking the stage at the prelude event ahead of the main ceremony.

The Soweto Gospel Choir is the most successful African group in Grammy award history.

The 2019 victory is the third Grammy win for the South African group.
