Patrick Chukwuem Okogwu has never had it so good. Though his debut album 'Disc-Overy' will be released next month, he is already a force to be reckoned with on the UK Hip-Hop and Grime scene. All eyes will be on the South London rapper if he scoops home all the awards he has been nominated for towards the 15th MOBO Awards to be held at the Liverpool Echo Arena, Liverpool, United Kingdom on October 20, 2010. Okogwu, whose stage name is Tinie Tempah, has been nominated for 'Best Newcomer', 'Best UK Act', 'Best Song' and 'Best Video'. Tinie's breakout single 'Pass Out' ( The video of the song is on YOUTUBE ) debuted at #1 on the UK singles chart in March 2010. The song played a big part in securing Tinie Tempah his 4 nominations at the MOBO Awards. 'Pass Out' also reached Number 6 on the Irish Music Charts.

Tempah is also due to appear at the BT Digital Music Awards. He has been nominated in five award categories and he is tipped to win the awards on the night. He started getting some recognition when the video of his promotional single 'Wifey', produced by Flukes { Crazy Cousins } became an underground hit and subsequently secured the Channel U urban chart top spot for ten consecutive weeks in 2006. Tempah has performed with a lot of big time artists including Snoop Dogg at the 2010 Glastonbury Music Festival. He also supported Rihanna for four dates on her 10-date UK tour with Tinchy Stryder and Pixie Lott. The 21 year old rapper's album will be released by the Parlophone Music Label on October 4, 2010. The album will be in CD format and is available for digital download. RV wishes this cat with a Nigerian heritage the best in his music career. He has a bright future ahead of him.
