We're eyeing the World Music Category and giving a well deserved round of applause to Femi Kuti and Ladysmith Black Mambazo. This will be Femi Kuti's 4th Grammy nomination and Ladysmith Black Mambazo's 13th (3 of which they won)!

We do wonder whether the "committee" behind the Grammy's are aware of other African artists but we tend to wonder about such things a lot so...even Femi Kuti says he doesn't want to go to the Grammys again #justsaying.

What do YOU think of this shortlist? Who would you like to see on the list next year?
