In a surprising turn of events at the 2024 Grammy Awards, South African sensation Tyla emerged victorious in the Best African Music Performance category, outshining prominent Nigerian artists including Davido and Burna Boy.

Tyla, whose breakthrough came with the 2023 hit song ‘Water,’ expressed her elation at winning her first Grammy at the age of 22. The talented artist surpassed a formidable lineup of nominees, including industry heavyweights Davido, Burna Boy, Asake, and Ayra Starr.

The Grammy Award Premiere Ceremony at the Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles witnessed Tyla’s ‘Water’ triumph over other noteworthy contenders. The track fended off competition from Davido’s ‘Unavailable,’ Asake’s ‘Amapiano,’ Burna Boy’s ‘City Boys,’ and Ayra Starr’s ‘Rush.’
