Afrobeat star, Seun Kuti, has described music award ceremony, Grammy, as “boring.”

Seun said this in an interview with Linda Ikeji TV.


“Grammys are boring y’all. I’m sorry to tell you. First of all, it starts at 2, that’s what I didn’t know. Because on TV. it starts at 8.

“That 2 hours on TV, that’s the ghen ghen part. Grammy starts at 2. And from 2 to 7 is a big Jesus Christ party. Nigerians will feel welcome in this place, I’m telling you … It is about 40 different gospel categories. You don’t even understand how big the Grammys is tied. That’s why I understood when Soweto Gospel Choir won,” he said.


Seun Kuti, lost out in the ‘World Music Award’ category to South African group, Soweto Gospel Choir, at the 2019 edition of the Grammys held in February at the Staples Centre, Los Angeles, California.
