Nigeria’s dancehall act Timaya has bagged a Grammy Nomination having featured on Morgan Heritage’s album “Avrakedabra”.

Morgan Heritage is a reggae band formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artiste, Denroy Morgan. The band comprises Peter “Peetah” Morgan, Una Morgan, Roy “Gramps” Morgan, Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan, and Memmalatel “Mr. Mojo” Morgan.

The Nigerian singer featured alongside Ghanaian Afro-pop singer, Stonebwoy, Chubb Rock, Stylo G, Bunji Garlin, Dre Zion & Jaheil on Morgan Heritage’s “Avrekedabra” album.

“Avrekedabra” was nominated for the Best Reggae Album award and will slug it out with “Chronology” by Chronixx, “Lost in Paradise” by Common Kings, “Wash House Ting” by J Boog and “Stony Hill” by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, reported Premium Times Monday.

If the album wins in its category at the 60th Grammy Awards, Timaya will be the first Nigerian-based act to win a Grammy.

Wizkid and Kah-Lo failed to win at the Grammy Awards in 2016, but Nigeria did not completely lose out.
Cynthia Erivo, a singer and actress born in London to Nigerian immigrants, won a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album for the cast recording of the musical The Color Purple in 2016.

The 60th edition of the Grammy Awards will air live from the Madison Square Gardens on January 28.

What ??? Does it mean that no Nigerian has ever won Grammy?
I find this hard to believe.  :o
