  • Some of the names on this list will shock you!

The Grammy Awards have long been the gold standard for musical artistes all over the world.

Every musician craves the iconic gramophone trophy and the lucky ones that have won it always show it off.

However, a number of artistes have not been fortunate enough to pick up a Grammy – and it’s not because they’re not good.

The following 10 artistes are actually great but for some strange reason, they have never won a Grammy Award.


1. Femi Kuti

Femi Kuti has four Grammy nominations.

The Nigerian Afrobeat legend has been nominated four times in the world music category but has not won any yet.

He has said in several interviews that he no longer particularly cares for the Grammys anymore.


2. King Sunny Ade

Sunny is not bothered though.

KSA has been nominated twice by the Grammy academy – first in 1983 and again in 1998.


3. Nicki Minaj

The Grammy Academy obviously is not afraid of Nicki.

It is quite unbelievable that Nicki Minaj is not a Grammy winner. She’s been the most impacting female rapper in the last decade and she has competed successfully with pop stars.


4. Rick Ross

Rick Ross
Boss but no plaque.

Rozay might be a boss, but the Grammy board is not seeing that. Six times nominated, nil time winner. Believe that.


5. Snoop Dogg

Snoop is not a big fan of the awards.
Snoop is not a big fan of the awards.

In 2015, Snoop was quoted as saying, ‘Fuck the Grammys. Fuck the Oscars. Fuck all that slavery-type award shows… He had a right to be pissed; he has been nominated a whooping 17 times and has won nada.


6. Nas

Nas is an icon with no Grammy.
Nas is an icon with no Grammy.

Nas‘ iconic debut album Illmatic changed rap and inspired a hip-hop renaissance.

While Nas has earned nods in the years since, he’s still yet to take home a win. The Grammys didn’t even give it to him for his sweet posthumous collaboration with pal Amy Winehouse for 2013’s ‘Cherry Wine’.


7. Katy Perry

At least Katy Perry makes up for the Grammy losses by attending stunning dresses.
At least Katy Perry makes up for the Grammy losses by attending stunning dresses.

Katy Perry lost out to Adele on three different occasions. And in 2015 when Adele did not release a material for her to compete with, she lost to Sam Smith.

Life is just not fair.


8. 2pac

The closest 2pac came to the Grammys was presenting an award with rock group Kiss in 1996.

‘Pac’s ‘Thug Life’ persona was not easy on the eye but his artistry was impeccable.

The Grammys nominated him twice when he was alive and four more times posthumously; yet he didn’t win any.


Thankfully, B.I.G won a few Soul Train awards before he died.

His two studio albums Ready to Die and Life After Death helped cement him as one of hip-hop’s most influential figures, but Biggie never took home a Grammy.

He was nominated four times.


10. Spice Girls

This one is inexplicable. How come Spice Girls never got even one Grammy nomination?
This one is inexplicable. How come Spice Girls never got even one Grammy nomination?

The Spice Girls has sold close to 100 million records. The group is one of the most successful pop groups ever created, grossing billions of dollars in album sales and merchandise.

They were a cultural phenomenon in the ’90s. But they never even got nominated once for a Grammy!
