Nigeria's Femi Kuti is now a Grammy nominated artist. The 2010 nominees were recently announced and Femi received a nod for his current album titled 'Day By Day'.
Femi joins King Sunny Ade as the only other Nigerian to have received a Grammy nod. Unlike King Sunny Ade, this is Femi's second nomination. Other artists of Nigerian heritage have won Grammy awards and they are Sade and Seal who are both British citizens.
Below is a fan made video for his song, "Tell Me" off the album 'Day By Day'.
Congratulations to Femi Kuti, one of many carrying on the tradition of Afrobeat music as a tool of political discourse, education and empowerment, just as Fela Kuti once did.
