Nigeria’s dancehall singer, Timaya, has been nominated for Grammy Nomination after featuring on Morgan Heritage’s Avrakedabra.
Morgan Heritage, a reggae band formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artiste, Denroy Morgan, comprises Peter ‘Peetah Morgan, Una Morgan, Roy ‘Gramps’ Morgan, Nakhamyah ‘Lukes’ Morgan, and Memmalatel ‘Mr. Mojo’ Morgan.
The singer featured alongside Stonebwoy, Chubb Rock, Stylo G, Bunji Garlin, Dre Zion & Jaheil off Morgan Heritage’s new Avrekedabra album.
In the category of the Best Reggae Album award, Avrekedabra will compete with Chronology by Chronixx, Lost In Paradise by Common Kings, Wash House Ting by J Boog and Stony Hill by Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley.
If the album wins in its category at the 60th Grammy Awards on January 28, Timaya will become the first Nigerian-based act with a Grammy.
Wizkid and Kah-Lo failed to win at the Grammy Awards in 2016, but Nigeria did not totally lose out.
