She expressed her sentiments, saying, “Grammy, there’s a problem. We had many parties. You have killed our groove. South Africa, Tyla’s ‘Water.’ Alright. [Victor] Osimhen, over to you. [Ademola] Lookman, over to you. South Africa, you will dance Amapiano after your AFCON defeat. You killed my groove. Grammy why?”
