This makes it the second Grammy nomination for the music star.
He was nominated in the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the 62nd Grammy for his ‘African Giant’ album, but lost to Angelique Kidjo, Beninese singer and songwriter.
This year’s edition of the awards was earlier scheduled for January, but was postponed amid concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event will kick off with a star-studded tribute performance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye, the late American music legend.
