Meanwhile, footage of a mosh pit at a Tinie Tempah gig went viral online earlier this year.
The British rapper/singer was playing a set at Landstreff Stavanger festival in Norway at the weekend when a massive mosh pit formed in the crowd.
Sharing footage online, Tempah wrote: “Holy moly… I feel sorry for the girl in the middle.”
Earlier this year, Tempah elaborated on his busy work ethic in an interview with NME.
“It’s glamorous, yes! Get over it! I work hard, I work so hard,” he said. “Every time you see me in any of those [Instagram] pictures, I’m working. When I was in Milan, I was there working. If I’m on a jet, it’s work. If I’m in Vegas, I’m working. If I’m in LA, I’m working. If I’m in New York, I’m working. If I’m in Ibiza, I’m very much working. So it looks glamorous, but I’m working hard for everything that I get.
“I’m showing young people, the uninvited, that you can be proud and have a glamorous life and you can earn it. Anything is possible.”
