South African artist Tyla Laura Seethal, popularly known as Tyla, has provided insight into her admiration for Nigerian singer Asake and the inspiration behind her viral hit, ‘Water.’

In a recent interview with RollingStone, Tyla expressed her fondness for Asake’s use of “choir vocals.” She highlighted that her song ‘Water’ drew inspiration from Amapiano, a music genre from her native South Africa, her early influences in R&B during childhood, and the vibrant Afrobeats scene in Nigeria.

Tyla explained, “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.”

She further expressed her admiration for the step vocals in Afrobeats music, particularly enjoying the way Asake incorporates them. Tyla incorporated similar choir-like vocals into the chorus of her song ‘Water,’ resulting in its catchy and memorable nature, as she noted, “Obviously, people can’t stop singing, they can’t get it out of their minds, which I love.”

Former model Crystal McKinney has accused US rapper and business mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2003. McKinney filed a lawsuit against Diddy on Tuesday in federal district court in Manhattan, making her the sixth person to accuse him of sexual assault.

In her lawsuit, McKinney, who was 22 at the time, recounted meeting Diddy during a Men’s Fashion Week event at Cipriani Downtown in New York. She claimed that the rapper invited her to a New York City space where he and several men were drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana. McKinney alleged that she was given a joint that she later believed was laced with a narcotic or other intoxicating substance.

Despite insisting that she had enough, McKinney said Diddy pressured her to continue drinking and smoking and demanded that she follow him to the bathroom. She accused the rapper of forcing himself on her, kissing her, shoving her head down to his crotch, and commanding her to perform oral sex. When she refused, she alleged that Diddy forced her into it.

Diddy first made headlines in November 2023 when Cassie accused him of rape, abuse, and human trafficking during their 10-year relationship. That lawsuit was settled out of court a day after it was filed. Following this, Diddy faced multiple accusations of sexual assault. Joi Dickerson-Neal accused him of drugging and raping her when she was a college student at Syracuse University in 1991. On the same day, another woman accused Diddy and singer-songwriter Aaron Hall of taking turns raping her and a friend over 30 years ago in New York City. In December, a fourth woman accused Diddy, along with Harve Pierre and another individual, of sex trafficking and gang rape when she was 17. Additionally, on February 26, Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones, a former producer and videographer for Diddy, filed a lawsuit alleging that the rapper sexually harassed and drugged him.

Don Jazzy explained that paying attention to critics serves as a distraction.

On his X handle on Saturday, he wrote: “Nobody cares about you when you are struggling and grinding. If you worry about what people think once you make it, then you didn’t learn anything during the come-up and will be back to suffering soon.”

“Worrying about what people think during both your grinding phase and your successful phase is a distraction.”
