The Nigerian media acknowledged Burna Boy for achievements that I have accomplished – Seun Kuti

The Nigerian media acknowledged Burna Boy for achievements that I have accomplished – Seun KutiSeun Kuti, Grammy-nominated Afrobeat musician, expressed his dissatisfaction with the incorrect attribution of achievements in the Nigerian music industry to Burna Boy.

He pointed out that Burna Boy was widely publicized as the first artist to perform at Coachella in 2020, despite Femi Kuti having performed at the festival in 2012. Additionally, he noted that Femi Kuti had received multiple Grammy nominations in the Best World Music Album category before Burna Boy earned his first nomination for African Giant.
During a recent interview with The Public Republic, Kuti expressed his disappointment that his album ‘Black Times’ was nominated for Best World Music Album years ago, yet no African award organizers considered it for a nomination.

The singer, who has been the center of controversy, mentioned that even though he received another Grammy nomination for his work on Janelle Monae’s ‘Age of Pleasure,’ which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2024 Grammys, the media failed to acknowledge him as one of the Nigerian artists nominated for the 66th Grammys.

My brother, Femi Kuti, has received multiple Grammy nominations. I have also been nominated in the past. However, in the last edition, the Nigerian media failed to mention my name among the Nigerian artists nominated for the 66th Grammys. This is a recurring pattern where my achievements are overlooked, as if I am not a Nigerian artist.

“He lamented that they claimed Burna Boy was the first Nigerian artist to perform at Coachella in 2020, when I had already performed in 2012 as though I were from Togo.”
