The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced Afrobeat pioneer, as one of its 17 nominees for induction into the Rock Hall’s Class of 2022
It is the second time the Afrobeat legend is nominated after having missed out on being inducted last year.
Although the Rock Hall inductees are decided upon by a body of more than 1,000 artists, industry members and historians, fans have the opportunity to contribute to the selection process by voting every day at vote.rockhall.com or the museum in Cleveland.
The five artists who receive the most votes of these 17 nominees will be tallied among the other ballots to ultimately decide the Class of 2022.
The Rock and Roll Class of 2022 will be unveiled in May 2022, with the ceremony itself taking place at a yet-to-be-announced date and location.
