If there is one South African artist who is all about exporting the Mzansi culture to the world, it is Tyla. The Grammy-award-winning singer has gone from carrying a packet of maize meal in her bag (because of her love of pap) to eating Go-Slo’s chips.

However, her Mzansi fans are worried that the price of their beloved snack that embodies southern African culture will increase.

TYLA’S FANS CONCERNED ABOUT THE PRICE OF GO-SLO’S CHIPS

In a snippet of her new music video, the Water hitmaker can be seen eating BBQ-flavoured Go-Slo’s chips. In another part of the music video, Tyla enjoys an Apple-munch with her video co-stars.

In most spaza shops, the price of these chips ranges from R7 to R10.

“Go slos are gonna be R20 now [sic],” wrote one netizen.

“Go-slo price is about to increase 😭😭 that’s literally our lunch as students… [sic]” said another.

Although Tyla is the most recent world-recognised music artist to be seen enjoying the much-loved chips, she is not the only one. In October last year, images of DJ and record producer Uncle Waffles also enjoying Go-Slo’s went viral.

‘JUMP’ MUSIC VIDEO, COLLABORATING WITH GUNNA AND SKILLIBENG

The short clip of Tyla eating Go-Slo’s snacks is from her new video for her song Jump – which is featured on her self-titled debut album, which was released in March.

The 22-year-old songstress featured American rapper Gunna, 30, and Jamaican dancehall DJ and rapper Skillibeng, 27, who also appear in the music video.

Speaking to People about the collaboration, she said: “I felt like it needed a rapper on it to really take it there. I first thought of Gunna because, I mean, Gunna is talented, and he’s also shown interest in African culture and the music, so it only made sense.”

TYLA ON WINNING A GRAMMY AWARD

During the same interview, Tyla also spoke about earning her first Grammy win in the “Best African Music Performance” category almost three months ago, which made her the youngest-ever Grammy-winning African artist.

“Hearing my name, being able to get on that stage and say a whole speech was crazy,” said the Truth or Dare singer.

“Especially considering my age and how early I am in my career. I didn’t expect that honestly, but I’m just so grateful that it happened. It’s history. It’s such a big moment for home. I couldn’t be happier, really.”
