Femi Kuti’s album ‘Fight To Win,’ got him his first Grammy nomination in 2003 under the ‘Best Ethnic or Traditional Folk Recording’, and according to him, he lost out on the award due to the politics his former record company played with it.

‘When I was nominated for the Grammy the first time, I was basically going to win, it was a super album’
