Tyla Brings Home A Grammy for Hit Song ‘Water’

Tyla continues to reach superstardom and make South Africans incredibly proud. In the latest chapter of her journey on the world stage, Tyla was awarded a Grammy for her viral song ‘Water’. This award is the first win of its kind in the newly added ‘Best African Music Performance’, launched by the Recording Academy for 2024 with the intention to highlight and include African music as part of the winning list going forward.

In true, cute-as-HECK Tyla fashion, her acceptance started with Oh my – what the heck!” and “If you don’t know me, my name is Tyla. I’m from South Africa and last year God decided to change my whole life, so thank you so much to God. Thank you to my team, my family; I know my mother’s crying somewhere in here.” This win is an astounding one, with Tyla being the youngest South African to win a Grammy award, joining other homegrown musicians like  Zakes Bantwini, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Soweto Gospel Choir, Black Coffee, Nomcebo Zikode, Wouter Kellerman and Miriam Makeba.

We can’t wait to see what Tyla does next.
