My Career Isn’t Based On Winning A Grammy’– Femi Kuti

 

in a recent interview spoke about being nominated for a Grammy. The afrobeat legend has been nominated for a Grammy Award four times in the world music category in 2003, 2010, 2012 and 2013.

When asked if he wanted to win a Grammy, Femi Kuti said that he believes that his career is not based on winning a Grammy. He believes that if it were, he ‘would have won one by now.’
