By Oluwapelumi Oluwayemi

Grammy-winning South African singer, Tyla, has expressed her preference for assertive men over extremely funny men.

Speaking in a recent interview with Capital Xtra, London, the ‘Water’ crooner said her ideal man is a dominant man.

Tyla said, “My biggest turn on is a dominant man. And my biggest turn off is guys that are funny all the time. I like funny guys but when they don’t know when to be serious it irritates me.”

Tyla Laura Seethal, born 30 January, 2002, known mononymously as Tyla, is a South African singer and songwriter.
