South African singer Tyla has won her first-ever Grammy Award for her smash hit “Water.”
Tyla scooped a Grammy in the esteemed category of Best African Music Performance, standing tall among nominees such as ASAKE & Olamide, Burna Boy, Davido featuring Musa Keys, and Ayra Starr.
“I never thought I’d say I won a Grammy at 22 years old,” Tyla said as she accepted the award. “Thank you to the Recording Academy for this category. It’s so important.”
The Best African Music Performance category is one of three new categories at the 2024 Grammys, along with Best Alternative Jazz Album and Best Pop Dance Recording.
