Grammys nomination sends Made Kuti on memory lane


Being 25, Made Kuti may not have many decades of seasons behind him yet, but he has a cause to travel the memory lane.

The Grammys nomination he just secured with his first album – ‘Legacy’, is the elixir.

So happy is he that he now reminds how he self-started his career, putting in his all to secure a great future that is already kissing him on the dome.

On Wednesday, which is a day after the nomination he shared with his father, Femi, was announced, he reflects on Instagram: “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.”

The 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.’
