Apparently, Wizkid wasn’t the only Nigerian who made the Grammy Awards nomination list, another Nigeria-born artiste also did.
Her name is Kah-Lo. Though her name may not resonate with many Nigerians, who cares; she’s a Grammy nominee.
Kah-Lo’s real name is Faridah Seriki, and she’s the daughter of former Minister of Defence and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Chief Demola Seriki.
Like Wizkid, she earned a joint nomination. Her nomination came in the Best Dance Recording category for the song, Rinse & Repeat with British DJ, Henry Riton Smithson.
The alumna of Hofstra Journalism in the United States of America announced her nomination on her Instagram page with the caption: “Oluwa did it! @riton has all the swag sauce.”
‘Rinse & Repeat’ has been streamed 5 million times on Spotify and played 1.5 million times on YouTube less than a month after its release.
