The award ceremony is scheduled to hold in February 10 at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, U.S.
Seun, who was nominated for Best World Music Album in October 2018, will perform alongside Malian singer/songwriter, Fatoumata Diawara, at the award’s Premiere Ceremony.
A statement on the Grammy website, published, said, “The 61st Grammy Awards will start off with sizzle as the lineup for the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony has been revealed, led by Mr. Bombastic himself, Grammy winner and current nominee, Shaggy, as host.”
Seun’s fourth album, “Black Times” earned him the nomination in the keenly contested category.
