Tyla, the South African singer, has won her first Grammy Award in the ‘Best African Music Performance’ category for her song ‘Water’.


The songwriter defeated other African nominees like Olamide and Asake for their song ‘Amapiano,’ Burna Boy for ‘City Boys,’ Davido for ‘Unavailable,’ and Ayra Starr for ‘Rush’.

Davido and Burna Boy also failed to win any of their categories at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

The ‘Assurance’ singer, who is a first-time Grammy nominee, was nominated in three categories.


He, however, lost the ‘Best African Music’ category to Tyla’s ‘Water’, ‘Best Global Music Performance’ to ‘Pashto’ by Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain featuring Rakesh Chaurasia, and ‘Best Global Album’ to Shakti’s ‘The Moment’.

Burna Boy, who was nominated in four categories, failed to win any of the categories.

The ‘Twice as Tall’ hitmaker lost the ‘Best African Music’ category to Tyla’s ‘Water’, and ‘Best Global Music Performance’ to ‘Pashto’ by Béla Fleck, Edgar Meyer & Zakir Hussain featuring Rakesh Chaurasia.


Shakti’s ‘The Moment’ won the ‘Best Global Album’ category while ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ went to Lil Durk’s ‘All My Life’ featuring J Cole.

The 2024 Grammy premiere ceremony kicked off in the early hours of Monday and is being held at the Peacock Theater. It is being broadcast live on live on GRAMMY.com and the Recording Academy’s YouTube channel.
