Many Nigerians who had expected to see Nigerian Afrobeat musician Seun Kuti, perform at the 2019 Grammy Awards; night held last Sunday, were shocked not to see him on stage, and have been wondering why.

But today the son of late music legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has revealed why he didn’t perform at the Grammy Awards event.

Kuti,  who was billed to perform at the ceremony, shared a video of himself on the Grammys red carpet and said that he had a “ticket mix-up”, which meant, he missed his flight and was unable to rehearse, hence, his non-perfomance at the show as earlier announced.

He then thanked those, who stepped in for him, like the Soweto Gospel Choir and the Malian singer, Fatoumata Diawara.

On his Instagram page, Kuti wrote: “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.

“Our entire team we must keep banging the door till they let us in.
