Tyla was the topic of discussion on Thursday following her “Breakfast Club” interview, and now, she is speaking out. 

The “Water” singer joined the morning show, where Charlamagne tha God questioned her about her past “Coloured” comments. However, instead of answering, the 22-year-old glanced over to her representative who interjected off-camera and asked for the question to be skipped. Tyla remained silent until they moved on to the next subject. This once again caused backlash on the internet, the same way it had when she initially made the remark. After she immediately began trending online, Tyla spoke out via social media.

“Never denied my blackness, Idk where that came from…I’m mixed with Black/Zulu, Irish, Mauritian/Indian and Coloured,” she wrote, further explaining “In Southa, I would be classified as a Coloured woman and other places I would be classified as a Black woman. Race ic classified differently in different parts of the world.”

In December 2023, she declared herself as “Coloured,” igniting a debate on racial identity. According to Tyla, she doesn’t expect to be “identified as Coloured outside of Southa by anyone not comfortable doing so.” 

“I’m both Coloured in South Africa and a Black woman,” Tyla added. 

Needless to say, social media had many thoughts over the conversation and her subsequent explanation.
