Made Kuti, son of Afrobeat maestro, Femi Kuti, has bagged his first Grammy nominations.
The grandson of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, earned his first nomination at the 64th Grammy Awards as his father bagged his fifth Grammy nomination.
The nomination for the 64th Grammy awards were announced on Tuesday by the Recording Academy.
Made Kuti, alongside his father, made the cut for the nominations in one of the 86 categories for the 2022 GRAMMYs Awards.
Made Kuti and Femi Kuti’s joint album, ‘Legacy +,’ was nominated for the Best Global Music Album at The 64th Grammys.
The Kutis were nominated in the same category alongside Angelique Kidjo for her album, ‘Mother Nature,’ Rocky Dawumi for the album, ‘Voice of Bunbon Volume 1,’ and Wizkid for his album, ‘Made In Lagos.’
Reacting to the feat, Made Kuti said: “My mind is blown!! A Grammy nomination from my debut album! All those years I spent practising all those instruments by myself to record an album, I would play every instrument by myself! Notating the music, recording it, editing it! Thank you to everyone that was involved.”
Earlier in 2021, Made Kuti earned a nomination at the just concluded AFRIMA awards in the Best artiste, duo, or group in the African jazz category.
The singer’s song, Free Your Mind, earned him the nomination.
Made makes his mark as the third Kuti to earn a Grammy nomination. Neither his father, Femi nor his uncle, Seun Kuti, have won the award.
