SEUN KUTI: BLACK TIMES ALBUM CONSIDERED FOR GRAMMY

Seun Kuti’s Black Times Album is being considered for a Grammy Nomination in the World Music Category.

The son of Late Afrobeat King, Fela Kuti took to Instagram to reiterate that it is not a nomination yet and encouraged his Recording Academy friends to vote for it.

Black Times is the fourth album by Seun and Egypt 80, the extraordinary dance orchestra created by Fela Kuti as a conduit for the common people. Inherited by the 14-year- old Seun in 1997, the younger Kuti has been building to this, his most accomplished and honest album yet. “Black Times is a true reflection of my political and social beliefs,” says the singer, bandleader and musician, 34. “It is an album for anybody who believes in change and understands the duty we have to rise up and come together. The elites always try to divide the working class and the poor people of the world. The same oppression felt by workers in Flint, Michigan is felt by workers in Lagos and Johannesburg.”

The 61st Grammy Award is scheduled to hold in February 2019.
