Wizkid, Femi Kuti and Made Kuti have lost out of the race to win a Grammy at the 64th edition at the MGM Arena, Las Vegas.

At a televised event, Wizkid, Femi Kuti, and Made Kuti lost out in the two categories, Best Global Music Performance and Best Global Music Album.

While the Nigerian music stars lost to Arooj Aftab for her single ‘Mohabbat’ in the Best Global Music Performance, Angelique Kidjo won the Best Global Music Album.

During her acceptance speech, Kidjo appreciated young Africans that have continued to collaborate with her to promote the continent to the world.
