Nigerian Media Overlooks My Accomplishments, Credits Burna Boy Instead – Seun Kuti Laments

Grammy-nominated Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti, has voiced his frustration over the misattribution of accomplishments within the music industry.

Kuti highlighted that Burna Boy was incorrectly credited as the first Nigerian artist to perform at Coachella in 2020, even though Kuti himself had performed at the festival back in 2012

He also pointed out that his brother, Femi Kuti, had received multiple Grammy nominations prior to Burna Boy’s recognition for Best World Music Album.

Furthermore, Kuti mentioned that his album “Black Times” was nominated for Best World Music Album, yet it was overlooked by African award organizers.

Despite his recent Grammy nomination for his contribution to Janelle Monae’s “Age of Pleasure,” Kuti noted that he was not acknowledged among the Nigerian artists nominated for the 66th Grammys.

Kuti expressed his discontent, stating that the Nigerian media often disregards his achievements, almost as if he were not Nigerian.
