The singer featured alongside Ghanaian Afro-pop singer, Stonebwoy, Chubb Rock, Stylo G, Bunji Garlin, Dre Zion & Jaheil off Morgan Heritage’s new Avrekedabra album.
Avrekedabra 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 come 28th of January, Timaya will be the first Nigeria-based act with a Grammy.
Wizkid and Kah-Lo failed to win at the Grammy Awards in 2016, but Nigeria did not totally lose out.

The 60th edition of The Grammy Awards will air live from the Madison Square Gardens, USA, on January 28. (Premium Times)
