Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti and his Egypt 80 band, has been nominated for 61st Grammy’s best world music album for his Black Times album.

The son of late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti will be contesting the category with four other nominees: Bombino – Deran, Fatoumata Diawara – Fenfo, Soweto Gospel Choir – Freedom and Yiddish Glory – The Lost Songs of World War II.
