Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti did not perform at the 2019 Grammy Awards, which held on Sunday night, and he has explained the reason why.

Wiring on his Instagram handle on Monday, Seun shared a video of himself on the Grammys red carpet and said he had a “ticket mix-up”, which meant, he missed his flight and was unable to rehearse, hence, his non-performance at the show as earlier announced.

He went on to thank those, who stepped in for him, like the Soweto Gospel Choir and the Malian singer, Fatoumata Diawara.

He said, “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.”
