Made Kuti the son of legendary afrobeat musician, Femi Kuti, and the grandson of the progenitor of the music genre, afrobeat, has bagged his first Grammy Award nomination at the 64th edition of the ceremony.

Made joins his father, and uncle, Seun Kuti, in the league of Grammy nominees. While his father has been nominated for the award about five times, his uncle has received the nomination once.

Excited about the nomination with his debut album, Legacy +, a joint effort by the singer and his father, Made stated that years of practising has eventually paid off.

He said, “My mind is blown! A Grammy nomination from my debut album! All those years I spent practising all those instruments by myself to record an album, I would play every instrument by myself! Notating the music, recording it, editing it! Thank you to everyone that was involved.”

The nominations for the 64th Grammy awards were announced on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, by the Recording Academy. Made Kuti, alongside his father, made the cut for the nominations in one of the 86 categories for the 2022 GRAMMYs Awards.
