Nigerian singer Kah-Lo has lost at the Grammy Awards 2017.

Kah-Lo is a Nigerian musician known for the vocals on 'Rinse and Repeat' by British DJ, Riton. Her humorous yet edgy delivery gave the song a unique charm that has made it a club favourite around the country.

The song ‘Rinse and repeat’ which was released in 2016, was nominated for the Best Dance Recording of the year at the 59 Grammy Awards. She was nominated alongside Riton.

She lost to Chainsmoker's 'Don't let me down' featuring Daya.


As well as being a huge club hit, ‘Rinse & Repeat’ has been streamed over 26 million times on Spotify and played 6 million times on YouTube less than a month after its release. It has also reached number 1 on the Shazam chart and been on the A list of Radio 1, Kiss FM and 6 Music, turning Kah-lo into an instant star.

Thanks in large part to Kah-lo’s adaptable vocals, ‘Rinse & Repeat’ has been remixed by the likes of Preditah, Jammer, and Brodinski & Myd, with top producer Jammer’s remix particularly complimenting Kah-lo’s tone.

Aside from ‘Rinse & Repeat,’ Kah-lo has put out a strong collection of work on her Soundcloud, demonstrating her great musical ability. There is much more to her than the monotone rap she delivers so well; Kah-lo is also a talented singer, arranger and instrumentalist, tipped for big things.
