“My husband is actually the one who goes to the market. I don’t go to the market because I can’t. Because of my status, I can’t. But my husband didn’t say you know traditionally, a man is not supposed to go to the market, I’m not gonna go, no. My husband actually goes to the market.”

“Earlier in my career, I used to go with him but I’d stay in the car, because our cars are tinted, so I’d stay in the car. But then, one time we went to Tejuosho and someone found out I was in the car. It became a major security risk, so he said don’t ever go with me again. He goes and he has fun and he comes back home, and I do the cooking, so you see we strengthen each other”.

Tyla Laura Seethal, a South African singer, has explained why she adores Nigerian singer Asake.

Tyla said he loves how Asake uses his “choir vocals” in a recent RollingStone interview about the inspiration behind her viral hit “Water.”

Her song ‘Water’ was inspired by Amapiano from her home country, childhood R&B influences, and Nigerian Afrobeats, she said.

She said, “Amapiano music is the core of it [‘Water’] in my opinion. And just all of the influences from growing up like Rihanna and all the R&B girlies, R&B boys, pop girls. That type of influences I love bringing into my music.
