Last Friday, the music industry was abuzz with excitement as Tyla bagged her first Grammy nomination in the Best African Music Performance category.
The news quickly spread like wildfire on social media, with fans and fellow artists congratulating her on this prestigious achievement.
However, amidst the celebrations, there was a wave of controversy surrounding Elaine, another talented South African artist who has also been making waves on the international scene.
Some trolls took this opportunity to compare the two artists and question why Elaine hasn’t achieved the same level of success as Tyla.
One Twitter user, @_ShaunKeyz, commented, “Tyla is slowly becoming what we wanted Elaine to be, she’s really gone ey.” This tweet sparked a heated debate among fans, with some defending Elaine and others expressing their disappointment in her career trajectory.
It’s important to remember that success in the music industry is subjective and cannot be measured solely by Grammy nominations or awards. Both Elaine and Tyla have their own unique styles and artistic visions, which resonate with different audiences.
Elaine, who is only 24 years old, has already achieved significant milestones in her career. Her debut album, ‘Elements,’ received critical acclaim and garnered millions of streams worldwide. She has also been signed to Columbia Records, one of the most prominent record labels in the industry.
On the other hand, Tyla’s rise to fame has been equally impressive. Her hit single, ‘Water,’ captured the hearts of music lovers and propelled her into the spotlight. The Grammy nomination is just another feather in her cap, showcasing her talent and hard work.
