Seun Kuti speaks on being nominated for the Grammy Awards

Seun Kuti was recently nominated for a Grammy Award in the World Music category.

The musician – who is the son of late music legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti – spoke to BBC about how much the nomination means to him.

On the Grammy nominations: “It felt amazing, highly unexpected, great news, it completely blew my mind.”

On how his family influenced his music: “My great grandfather was the first artist to be recorded in West Africa. My grandfather was a great composer of Anglican hymns.

“My father, my brother and now me, my family is highly musical. There is no escaping it.”

On the state of music in Africa: “A lot of musicians are not encouraged to develop their art and themselves as artist, so everyone is stuck in this circle of pop music.”
