Are You Serious Femi Kuti Grabs His Fourth Grammy Award Nomination.
Nigerian musician and respected Afrobeat singer Femi Kuti has been nominated at the prestigious Grammy Awards.

 Femi picked up his fourth ever nomination in the World Music Category for his No Place For My Dream which was nominated in the Best World Music Album Category alongside French group Gipsy Kings, South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Indian singer Ravi Shankar.'‘
 In 2003, Femi, eldest son of late Afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo Kuti picked up his first ever Grammy Award nomination but lost out to  Panamanian salsa singer RubĂ©n Blades. He similarly lost in 2010  when he was nominated in the same category. US banjo player Bela Fleck walked away with the award.

Last year Femi Kuti vowed never to attend the Grammys again , let's just hope he wins this time.
