Craig David has turned down a record deal from Sean 'Puffy' Combs. David said the call was one of the highlights of his career, but he didn't take up the offer.

The rap star and boss of Bad Boy Records called Craig personally to offer him a contract.

Craig, who is now aiming to break the US market, said "I was really flattered and it was like, 'Wow, I'm talking to Puffy on the phone'. It was crazy."
