GQ UK Interviews Nigerian UK #1 Rapper Tinnie Tempah

British rapper Patrick Okogwu a.k.a Tinnie Tempah born to Nigerian parents speaks to GQ about his current success and what it’s like to have a #1 UK charts song.

What's been your best recent cultural experience?
"The Chris Ofili exhibition is fantastic. He's incredible. Obviously because he's from a Nigerian background and I am as well, it was inspiring. I got the opportunity to preview it quite early on as I'm supposed to write a little lyric about it." Read the interview Here.
