Now, she got dragged after Tyla had the opportunity to go on an American TV show.
Tyla lauded for sticking to her local accent
Water hitmaker Tyla was interviewed on The Jennifer Hudson Show. She told the host, Jennifer, about how excited she was when she found out that she was nominated for a Grammy.
Tyla was true to her local coloured accent even though she spoke to an American audience, unlike Thuso Mbedu, who Americanised hers.
Mzanso drags Thuso, show love to Tyla
"I loved her 'Yoh' I was like 'Nee maan, she is coloured from Mzansi'."
"That yoh just makes every South African proud."
"Tyla does not have to change for these Americans, they are the ones who are obsessed."
"Thuso has had to take accent and dialect classes as an actor. Even actors in the US have to take them if the character is from a different state. As a singer, Tyla doesn't have to. They are both talented women, and South Africans should be proud."
"You can’t compare the two! Thuso is an actress, of course her accent won’t be the same! Tyla is a singer. Different strokes for different folks."
"Tyla is was we thought Trevor Noah and Thuso Mbedu would be for South Africans, I love her so much."
"Thuso’s accent is so cringe. Love Tyla’s authenticity."
Tyla went back to her school
Tyla got to mingle with the current learners, and they sang her new song, Truth or Dare. In the video, Tyla reminisced on the old days when she had done auditions and rehearsals and laughed with her friends.
