Soaking up the moment and enjoying being on the international map Octo went on to add, "Feels good to be up for 2 categories via the Recording Academy. #Grammys #Lamu Nights # Don (goat emoji)"
The rapper is being considered under the following categories, 'Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical' and 'R&B, Rap and Spoken Word' category.
Lamu Nights is a ten-track album that is full of collaboration with singers like Lisa Oduor, Wendy Kay, Jivu, Buruklyn Boyz, and Okello Max, among others.
It welcomes the public to his innate understanding of the world around him and the surroundings that made him.
Speaking during the album launch months ago Octo revealed that the album's reception blew him away as he hadn't anticipated the soaring success.
"This project has been a bigger success than I expected. The album's reception is overwhelmingly positive, even though this is not a rap/hip-hop album like the previous ones.
This is pure R&B and soul, and everyone is enjoying the music. It’s extremely satisfying. More positive vibes and experimental music are on the way," Octopizzo excitedly said.
