Tyla Laura Seethal (born January 30, 2002). She was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, to parents of Indian, Zulu, Mauritian, and Irish ancestry. She began by posting original songs and covers to her Instagram account and emailing them to various music industry personalities before being discovered by her first manager, who then organized her first recording sessions.
She matriculated from Edenglen High School in 2019 and was the head of culture that year.
Her debut single, “Getting Late,” featuring Kooldrink’s production, was a national success in late 2019. At the 28th South African Music Awards 2022, the accompanying music video was nominated for Music Video of the Year. She then got a recording contract with Epic Records in the United States through a joint venture with Fax Records. She then released the singles “To Last” and “Overdue” as a follow-up to this effort.
Tyla made her debut during Milan Fashion Week in 2023, following the release of her single “Been Thinking,” which won her first chart placement of her career on the Billboard Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. It was described as a “slick club anthem that channels the seductive pop-R&B hits of mid-2000s Ciara and Rihanna” by Pitchfork’s Heven Haile.
Tyla opened for Chris Brown on the European leg of his Under the Influence Tour. She released the “Girl Next Door” track in May 2023, featuring Nigerian artist Ayra Starr. She later released the song “Water” as the lead single off her upcoming debut extended play in July 2023.
The song reached the top 10 in New Zealand, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, topping the UK Afrobeats Singles Chart. A viral dance challenge on the social media platform TikTok inspired it. “Water” debuted at number 67, becoming Tyla the youngest South African and the first South African soloist to do so in 55 years, following Hugh Masekela’s “Grazing in the Grass” in 1968. Its accompanying music video debuted on YouTube on October 7, 2023, with 3 million views in three days. She released the official music video for her 2023 hit single Water two weeks ago, it currently has over 12 million views and counting on YouTube.

Tyla and Rema
Tyla said she would like to go on a date with Rema. She said,
“Rema would be cute. I hung out with him last year, and we took pictures together. That was so dramatic.
“After that situation, I realized that Hollywood is just vibes like you can’t trust everything you see cause that looked like a scandal. Even I started believing [we were dating]. But we are just friends.”
Rema and American musician Justin Skye sparked rumors of a romance in August when the ‘Calm Down’ crooner surprised her with a birthday date.
There have also been rumors that Rema was formerly romantically involved with Ayra Starr. Ayra Starr described Rema as his “brother,” putting to rest the rumors.
