Femi Kuti loses out again at the Grammys

Femi Kuti has lost out at the Grammy Awards for the fourth time. He was nominated in the ‘World Music' category for his album 'No Place For My Dream' but lost out to French group Gipsy Kings and South African choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo in a tie.

The winner for the category and some others were announced at a pre-telecast yesterday evening Jan. 26th.

The Afrobeat king also lost out at the Grammys in 2003, 2010 and 2011. Which means nothing really because being nominated is a great achievement! Femi didn't attend the awards.

I already knew he will lose, customer care, he is always nominated, but never wins, that was why he told his sister to represent him at the grammy

No award for him in Grammy, just like the title on his song, no place for my dream!. I think im not being sarcastic?. I value FK more than many so called Grammy winners anyway.

Nigerians can have unnecessary high hopes sha oo.. Just as they expected Mikel to win African Footballer of the year when Yaya is the best midfielder in EPL..

I like his decision to be absent...its better

sunday otuns said...

If i was femi kuti i would stop attending the grammys or send reps there.They used it to spite him.His late father,fela,was a critics of white supremacy over africans.That is also a factor he was often denied winner.Even some talented rappers and rnb stars are often deny winners or nomination because of their lyrics of police brutality against blacks in u.s.

Dem 4 consider our legend @ least 4 once.after being nominated 4times.but hapi dat he represent us,one luv.

Always thought its only our Nigerian Awards that has fowl play. This is the first time I'm watching Grammys live on TV.. There were too many things one couldn't explain. Like my pal said, if the measures used in giving The award is borrowed by Fifa, Fellani would win the Ballon D'OR #Mr Lucky

Keep trying Mr. Kuti; never quit! Buh there's a voice in me saying 'get rich or die trying' and I can't seem to marry these words with this post. Can someone give me a hand here?

Then if "its nothing really" ,you shouldn't have bothered to write about it or caption your headline as loses again.

I'm sure the US people did this solely because of our anti gay law.

Really no place for his dream of ever receiving the award#power of spoken words need I say

World... word pipo said...

Well, Gipsy kings are insanely goooooood. But nevertheless, I would have preferred my own Femi Kuti, probably out of emotions though.

Being nominated, I must confess, is a big plus.

We are proud

Stephen Ikiyei said...

Femi u r a winner in my heart... Kudos

Baba K said...

He alweady knew he wouldn't win so...Next plz

Chika Ekesi said...

I'm nigerian and I haven't even heard of his album(excerpt in sold outside the shores of Nija). Other artist nominated in his category I know of but not him. He knows he didn't really deserve to win. Wish him the best tho

hilary obiorah said...

He already knew he wasn't winning why do you think his sister went in his place?

Getting nominated for even one Grammy is a big achievement and none of the noise makers in our music industry has gotten that honor so he should be very proud.
