I’m into guys that act like they don’t want me – Singer, Tyla

Buzzing South African R&B singer, Tyla Laura Seethal, simply known as Tyla, has revealed the type of man that fascinates her.

She said she does not like guys who approach her as she is more attracted to men who pretend they do not like her.


The ‘Water’ crooner made the revelation during a recent chat on the Bianca show, stressing that such a guy must also be mysterious.

Tyla said: “I don’t like guys that approach me. I want guys that look like they don’t want me. And they must also be mysterious.”

The 21-year-old Grammy nominee also shared the boy/girl interaction that inspired the viral hit song ‘Water.’

“I heard the song [‘Water’] and I instantly fell in love. I finished it in Cape Town, South Africa. As soon as I finished recording, I was just playing it over and over again. It’s basically me telling a guy that stop being all-talk, I want you to show me what you got to offer. It’s kind of a naughty song but it’s the song of the summer,” Tyla said.
