He was nominated in the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the 62nd Grammy for his ‘African Giant‘ album but lost to Angelique Kidjo, Beninese singer-songwriter.

This year’s edition of the awards was earlier scheduled for January but was postponed amid concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

It will kick off with a star-studded tribute performance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye, late American music legend.
