Tyla made South Africa proud after winning 'Best African Music Performance' at the 66th annual Grammys. Her father has an interesting idea about where he reckons the Grammy should go. 

In an interview that transpired backstage, 22-year-old Tyla, who made history by becoming the youngest South African to win a Grammy, said: "My father already told me that it’s going in his room.”

"It's the sheer audacity for me," remarks one user. 

In case you missed it, here is more information on what happened at the Grammys:

The Grammys was a night to remember once again. With brand new categories, brilliant performances, and South African stars making an appearance, it was mesmerising. 

On Sunday night, the prestigious awards show took place and was hosted by none other than SA comedian, Trevor Noah, in Los Angeles, USA. 

We were in for many surprises at the 66th annual Grammys.
