The 21-year-old was nominated in the 'Best African Music Performance' category alongside Musa Keys, Davido, Burna Boy, Ayra Starr, ASAKE, and Olamide.

Jennifer, who is a two-time Grammy Award winner herself, asked Tyla about the moment she found out she was a nominee. 

"I was in my hotel room in New York. I didn't expect it at all... when I saw my name, yoh, I jumped up. I was screaming. I can't believe it. It's crazy," Tyla said.
