Tinie Tempah Wins Best International Act At Bet Awards
Tinie Tempah was flying the British flag high after he ran away with Best International Act (UK) at the 2011 BET Awards in Los Angeles last night. The 'Frisky' rapper – who also wowed crowds on Saturday at Glastonbury – ended a busy weekend by picking up the prestigious award…
Tinie has been a busy man lately: working over in the States for most of the year, launching 'Written In The Stars' as his debut track there, as well as releasing his 'Disc-Overy' album – which saw him enter the top 30.
With talks of a new album, studio time with Pharrell Williams and a new video featuring Wiz Khalifa, the London rapper is one more step away from taking over the music world.
