“Avrekedabra” was nominated for the Best Reggae album award coming up against “” by Chronixx, “” by Common Kings, “” by J Boog and “” by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.

It lost, the category was won by the album “” by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.

If the album had won in its category at the 60th Grammy Awards which held on January 28, 2018, Timaya would have been the first Nigerian-based act with a Grammy.

Another Nigerian who also lost a Grammy this year is Tunji Ige. The rapper is nominated as a producer on 'Location', a record by Khalid, which lost the "Best R&B" award.

'Location' is the debut single by American singer Khalid. It was released on February 19, 2017, by Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records as the lead single from his debut studio album American Teen. The track was produced by Syk Sense, Tunji Ige, and Chris McClenney. The song has since gone Platinum.
