Made Kuti Bags First Grammy Nomination After AFRIMA

Published

on

Made Kuti, son of Afrobeat maestro, Femi Kuti, has bagged his first Grammy nominations.

The grandson of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, earned his first nominations at the 64th Grammy Awards as his father bagged his fifth Grammy nomination.

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.

Made Kuti and Femi Kuti’s joint album, ‘Legacy +,’ was nominated for the Best Global Music Album at The 64th Grammys. The Kutis were nominated in the same category alongside Angelique Kidjo for her album, ‘Mother Nature,’ Rocky Dawumi for the album, ‘Voice of Bunbon Volume 1,’ and Wizkid for his album, ‘Made In Lagos.’

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

Made makes his mark as the third Kuti to earn a Grammy nomination. Neither his father, Femi nor his uncle, Seun Kuti, have won the award.

Earlier in 2021, the rising Afrobeat musician scooped his first award nomination at the All Africa Music Awards. Made earned a nomination in the Best artiste, duo, or group in the African jazz category. The singer’s song, Free Your Mind, earned him the nomination.

Other nominees in the category are Nigeria’s Tomi Owo and Olu, South Africa’s Thandi Ntuli, Zoe Modiga, and Bokani Dyer, Cameroon’s Franck Biyong, Kenya’s Hornsphere, Mozambique’s Jimmy Dludlu.

Made, the first son of Femi Kuti and Funke Kuti has been walking on a familiar and family path of music since he was young. He was a member of his father’s Positive Force band for a while after he graduated from London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2018.

BREAKING: Davido Donates 200M Birthday Giveaway, Adds N50m Extra To Orphanages Across Nigeria

Published

on

Multiple award-winning Nigerian singer and songwriter, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has donated the sum of 250 million naira to orphanages across Nigeria.

Recall that Davido made headlines some days ago when he urged his friends to send him a one million naira each ahead of his 29th birthday (Read Details Here).

Davido raised 40 million naira in less than one hour and it wasn’t too long before the talented singer accumulated 100 million naira.

He raised the benchmark to 200 million naira and Davido was able to accumulate the figure.

Davido has now released a statement revealing that he will be adding 50 million naira to the initial 200 million naira accumulated.

According to the statement released, Davido stated that the birthday giveaway will be disbursed to orphanage homes across the country.

Davido statement reads:

FRIDAY, 19TH NOVEMBER 2021

DONATION OF NGN 250,000,000.00 TO ORPHANAGES ACROSS NIGERIA

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to my friends, colleagues, fans, and the public for the generous expressions of love in recent days. In my usual playful manner, I requested a few days ago that my friends and colleagues send money in celebration of my birthday. The response and outcome exceeded my expectations, as I received about NGN 200,000,000.00 in less than two days. I truly appreciate everyone who donated hard-earned funds and I am very thankful for your generosity.

I have always been passionate about giving back and helping people. In view of this. I am delighted to announce that all the funds received, totaling NGN 200,000,000.00, will be donated to orphanages across Nigeria as well as the Paroche foundation. In addition, I will be making a personal donation of NGN 50,000,000.00, bringing the total amount to NGN 250,000,000.00.

To oversee the distribution of funds to beneficiaries.

I have established a five-person Disbursement Committee. Members of the committee include:

Mrs. Titi Adebayo- chairman of the committee.
Professor Jonathan Nwosu- secretary to the committee.
Professor Yahana Joel Asabe of the Northern Nigeria Seventh Day Adventist Union Conference.
Pastor (Dr) Oyalabu of Spring Time Development Foundation (SDF).
Professor Uloma Onuoha
The committee will compile a list of orphanages across Nigeria. They will determine the number of children and their needs at each orphanage and then divide the funds accordingly.

The committee will also determine the portion of the money that will be donated to Paroche foundation.

To maintain transparency, the committee will make public the names of the beneficiary orphanages and how much each will receive.

A list of all beneficiaries and their verified account details will be submitted to Wema Bank, who will then be instructed to credit each beneficiary’s account.

My goal is to do this fundraising every year to celebrate my birthday and give back to people in need. It is my hope that my friends, fans, colleagues in the industry, and the public will continue to support me as I drive this cause.

Once again, I express my sincere gratitude to my friends, colleagues, fans, and everyone that made this possible. God bless you all.

We rise by lifting others.
David
