People think I’ve joined Illuminati – Tyla

South African Amapiano star, Tyla, says because of her meteoric rise to fame and success in the industry, people are beginning to think she joined the Illuminati.

The Grammy winner said the belief that being a member of the Illuminati is the only way to succeed in the global music industry or have big accomplishments is flawed.

The ‘Water’ crooner stated this in an article on the latest issue of the Cosmopolitan Magazine, where she featured on the cover page.

Tyla who just released her self-titled debut album, said God deserves credit for all she has achieved so far as he is at the center of everything.

She said; “People already think I’m in the Illuminati? Oh, now. I know some people think that’s the only way, but it really isn’t. God is the center of everything that we are doing, and clearly, it’s working”.

Speaking on her the complexities of being a mixed-race South African in America, Tyla said people accuse her of denying that she is black.

In her words; “When people are like, ‘You’re denying your Blackness,’ it’s not that at all. I never said I am not Black. It’s just that I grew up as a South African knowing myself as Coloured. And now that I’m exposed to more things, it has made me other things too. I’m also mixed-race. I’m also Black. I know people like finding a definition for things, but it’s ‘and,’ not ‘or’.”
