He was also nominated for an award in the Best World Music Album category (he lost to Soweto Gospel Choir) and he attended event with his partner Yetunde but he failed to perform.
Seun Kuti took to instagram to explain the reason is because his ticket got mixed up and he missed his flight.
First and foremost I have to say I am sorry to all the fans that tuned in to see us perform yesterday but didn’t. I had the weirdest ticket mix up in history meaning I missed my flight and the rehearsals and we couldn’t go on. Big up to Soweto Gospel choir a group that has also inspired me. @fatoumata_diawara__for holding down our show without me. @lekanbalogun1@mccoyclothingsfor making us look really nice on that red carpet @versatilebay for @chefyeide clothes. @egypt80band and our entire team we must keep banging the door till they let us in!! #getthesax
