South African singer Tyla Laura Seethal, simply known as Tyla, has explained why she loves Nigerian singer Asake.

Speaking on the inspiration behind her viral hit ‘Water’ in a recent interview with RollingStone, Tyla said he loves how Asake uses his “choir vocals.”

She said her song ‘Water’ was inspired by Amapiano from her home country, her childhood R&B influences and Nigeria’s Afrobeats.

She said, “Amapiano music is the core of it [‘Water’] in my opinion. And just all of the influences from growing up like Rihanna and all the R&B girlies, R&B boys, pop girls. That type of influences I love bringing into my music.

Something I really love in Afrobeats music is when I hear those step vocals that sound like a choir, almost. And I really love the way Asake uses it. I just always love the way it sounds. So, with the chorus [of my song ‘Water,’ I incorporated it]. Obviously, people can’t stop singing, they can’t get it out of their minds, which I love.”
