Gabiro Mtu Necessary’s Album Receives Consideration For The 65th Grammy Awards

Gabiro Mtu Necessary has been recognized again by the Grammys Awards following his debut album Saint John.

The Kisumu-based musician received consideration for the 65th Grammy Awards making it the second the prestigious franchise has recognized his work.

In 2021, Mtu Necessary had his 3 track EP dubbed JENESIS that was recognized by the Recording Academy in the annual Behind the Records project. He later got considered for a Grammy nomination as the Best Global Music album alongside two other Kenyan musicians; Octopizzo and Victoria Kimani.

Saint John (Best Global Music Album) and another single dubbed Pok Alando(Best Global Music Performance) have both been added to the voting list categories this year.

On social media, Mtu Necessary was more than happy following the fete. He hopes this time round he’ll return home with something.

“Is it not appropriate to now say I am the first rapper to take Luo rap to the Grammys? We are bringing this to Kisumu one day, it’s close and I can feel it,” Gabiro said.

The rapper recently hit 2 million streams across all platforms.
