South Africa’s Tyla Wins Grammy Award

South African singer Tyla won a Grammy in the category of Best African Music Performance on Sunday.

The artist won the award for her afropiano and R&B song Water, which has reached global popularity and made various achievements.

Tyla accepted her award at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards premiere ceremony at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles. The premiere ceremony, held ahead of the main ceremony, is where the majority of awards are handed out.

“Oh my – what the heck!” Tyla said at the start of her acceptance speech.

“Oh my gosh, guys. This is crazy. Like I never thought I’d say, ‘I won a Grammy at 22 years old, guys’,” she said.

She continued: “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.”

“Thank you to the Recording Academy for this category. It’s so important and I know I’m forgetting some things, but I won a Grammy! Thank you, thank you,” she said, ending her speech.

Best African Music Performance is a new category for the Grammys, added for the 2024 ceremony.
