Egberu Papa if Bayelsa, Inietimi Alfred Odon who is popularly known as Timaya has every reason to be happy at the moment and this is a cheering news  for the artiste and for  the whole Nigeria and the burstling music industry as dancehall act, Timaya has gotten a Grammy nomination having featured on Morgan Heritage’s album titled  “Avrakedabra”.

Morgan Heritage is a reggae band formed in 1994 by five children of reggae artiste, Denroy Morgan. The band comprises Peter “Peetah” Morgan, Una Morgan, Roy “Gramps” Morgan, Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan, and Memmalatel “Mr. Mojo” Morgan.

The Nigerian singer featured alongside Ghanaian Afro-pop singer, Stonebwoy, Chubb Rock, Stylo G, Bunji Garlin, Dre Zion & Jaheil on Morgan Heritage’s “Avrekedabra” album. The album was nominated for the Best Reggae Album award and will slug it out with “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 in its category at the 60th Grammy Awards, Timaya will be the first Nigerian-based act to win a Grammy.

Wizkid and Kah-Lo failed to win at the Grammy Awards in 2016, but Nigeria did not completely lose out.

Cynthia Erivo, a singer and actress born in London to Nigerian immigrants, won a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album. The 60th edition of the Grammy Awards will air live from the Madison Square Gardens on January 28, 2018.
