South African musical sensation, Tyla, continues to make waves in the international music scene and has not forgotten her roots nor lost her authenticity in it all.

The 22-year-old Grammy Award winner caused a buzz on social media recently, when she received massive applause at an NBA basketball game in USA.

Taking to social media, fans praised her for how she has made a big name for herself ever since her hit song Water became a hit across the world.

During the recent Lakers’ game, all eyes were on Tyla as she stole the spotlight for her looks and her interaction with LeBron James.

The hitmaker has also been lauded for staying true to herself.

Tyla recently released a music video, for her new hit Jump, featuring US rapper, Gunna, and Jamaican, Deejay Skillibeng.

The video was shot in Johannesburg and shows the culture of the city and its vibe.

Jump is charting internationally and is now nearing 70 million listens on Spotify. It is the third most listened-to song on her album, after Water and Truth or Dare.

The breakout star is also captured on video during an interview in the UK, vouching for the South African cuisine.

The Water hitmaker, who received four BET nominations to tie with global icon Beyonce, says even though the UK is similar to what she knows from back home, the food needs a bit of spice.

Advocating for a touch of home in meals wasn’t a first for the singer and songwriter. She once whipped out a bag of maize meal from her handbag during an interview with British Vogue.

She revealed that her bag is packed with essentials, from her passport and Tabasco sauce to lip balm and maize meal.
