Tinie Tempah: "Jay Z has led by example"

Written in the Star singer Tinie Tempah has admitted to finding his new documentary "overwhelming," while revealing that he wants to emulate the success of Jay Z.

The 24-year-old rapper,  real name Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu, recently unveiled his new Discovering Destiny documentary which recalls milestones in his life.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Tinie said: ''It was while I watched a documentary about myself. I know that sounds a bit weird but it showed everything I have done so far and I found it a bit overwhelming.''

Tempah further explained that he wants to emulate his success, adding: ''He [Jay Z] has led by example through his art form.

''He's worked hard, been smart and made really good business decisions. So if you have aspirations as a young black guy to be an artist, a musician and an entrepreneur, and who knows, maybe one day work with tech companies and app companies and drinks brands and all of that, there is someone who has shown people like me that we can do that.
