Tyla Makes GRAMMY History with Surprise Win for Best African Music: Already etching her name in Billboard history with the international breakout hit ‘Water,’ rising singer Tyla can now add a remarkable achievement to her repertoire – a surprise win at the Recording Academy’s 2024 GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, February 4.
Having earned her first GRAMMY nomination for the chart-topping sensation ‘Water,’ Tyla not only dazzled the audience but also emerged victorious in the competitive category of Best African Music. The 22-year-old artist triumphed over industry heavyweights such as ASAKE, Olamide, Burna Boy, Davido, and Ayra Starr, securing her place in the GRAMMY record logs.
What makes Tyla’s win even more extraordinary is that she is the inaugural recipient of the Best African Music trophy, introduced just last year in 2023. This historic moment solidifies Tyla’s impact on the global music scene and positions her as a trailblazer in the industry.
The timing of this achievement is impeccable, as Tyla’s eponymous debut album is poised to hit digital shelves in just a month. With this GRAMMY win, anticipation for her upcoming release is sure to skyrocket, marking a pivotal moment in Tyla’s burgeoning career.
As Tyla continues to break barriers and make history, the music world eagerly awaits the next chapter in her promising journey. Congratulations to Tyla on this well-deserved accomplishment!
