Tinchy Stryder Biography

Kwasi Danquah (born 10 June 1987), better known by his stage name Tinchy Stryder, is a British pop rap vocalist of Ghanaian origin. Stryder is from Bow, East London and attended St Bonaventure's Catholic Comprehensive School in Forest Gate, Newham; he later enrolled as a student at the local university, the University of East London, where he completed his BA degree in moving image and animation in 2009. He had his first UK number one in the UK Top 40 Show (shown on MTV/4Music) with the song named, "Take Me Back", (a collaboration with Taio Cruz) which rose 3 places for one week. He then swiftly overtook this song by releasing the aptly named song "Number 1", (a collaboration with N-Dubz) that charted on 26 April 2009.
