South African singer, Tyla on Sunday defeated four Nigerian artistes to win the Best African Music Performance category at the 66th Grammy Awards. Tyla who had her breakthrough with the hit song ‘Water’ in 2023 defeated a line-up of Nigerian artistes that includes Davido, Burna boy, Asake and Ayra Starr.

The 22-year-old singer’s win has since rekindled rivalry between Nigerians and South Africans on social media even as both nations prepare to face off in the Africa Cup of Nations semi-final on Wednesday.
