Just when thought Nigerian/American producer Tunji Ige was the only Nigerian nominated for a Grammy Award in 2018, news just reaching NAIJ.com indicates that Timaya was also nominated.

Timaya was nominated because he featured alongside Stonebwoy, Chubb Rock, Stylo G, Bunji Garlin, Dre Zion & Jaheil on Jamaican group Morgan Heritage’s new album titled Avrekedabra.

The album was nominated for the Best Reggae album award and will compete against 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 the award, this would make Timaya will be the first Nigerian-based act with a Grammy. Wizkid and Kah-Lo were nominated for a Grammy in 2016, but none of them came home with the award.

Perhaps Timaya will do just that.
