My son drew my attention to TINIE TEMPAH and I am loving his music.
He is a London born Nigerian and he is doing great things - he has performed at Glastonbury (big music festival here); addressed the Student Union at Oxford University and collaborated with Snoop Dogg, P Diddy and others
Best of all, like a true Naija, he believes in the power of education saying: "I definitely want to be in a financial position where I can head off to Cambridge or Oxford or somewhere. I would study something like music management or something extremely random like physics, which no-one would expect, as I like challenges.''
Mmmm...I likey.....do have a listen and let me know what you think:
(1) WRITTEN IN THE STARS..........
(2) PASS OUT. .....this was his first break out tune and the beat is 'sickkkkk' (my son's words for fantastic)
Seriously, whenever this comes on, we all start dancing...even my boys stop whatever fight they are having at that moment to dance....!
......and PASS OUT live at Glastonbury (Summer 2010) with Snoop D
