The Grammy-winning singer Tyla from South Africa recently said that she can’t be in a relationship with a man who goes out to clubs a lot.
In a recent interview with Power 96.5 FM in Miami, the singer stated that she would rather be with a man who enjoys playing video games than a man who goes out to bars.
When people ask Tyla about her romantic life, she says that she is single because she wants to focus entirely on her music career.
The interviewer posed the following query.
“Which would you prefer: a lover who frequents clubs or one who plays video games a lot?”
“All day, I play video games. A man of the club? No! How in the hell?
“A lover who enjoys playing video games is preferable to one who spends every weekend out at the clubs.” I can be sure that the guy who enjoys playing video games will always be at my house. I adore staying at home as well.
When asked why she isn’t dating, she said:
Sure, I do have a partner. Right now, I’m not tinkering with any of it. My attention is on the prize.
When South African singer Tyla won a Grammy for her song “Water,” the event organizers stirred up a lot of internet debate.
The song “Water No Get Enemy,” by the late Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, caused controversy when it was played at the announcement.
The first-ever Best African Music Performance award went to Tyla’s “Water,” which beat out popular Nigerian songs including Davido’s “Unavailable,” Asake’s “Amapiano,” Burna Boy’s “City Boys,” and Ayra Starr’s “Rush.”
Yet instead of Tyla’s sensual midtempo ballad, Fela’s timeless masterpiece reverberated throughout the arena, turning the joyful moment into confusion and sadness.
A lot of people were upset with the organizers for what they saw as a “silly blunder” that denigrated Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, a legendary figure in African music history, and obscured the significance of the prize.
