Tinie Tempah's secret girlfriend

Tinie Tempah's secret girlfriend

Tinie Tempah has a secret girlfriend.

The 'Pass Out' rapper revealed he has recently started a new relationship with a woman who is not in the music industry but he doesn't want to name her as it is still early days.

He said: "It's still quite new. She's not in the business, I don't want to do that. It's nice to be around someone who does something completely different. She does art. It's nice."

Tinie, 27, also insisted he only wants "three more years of this intense madness" and then wants to settle down, get married and have children.

However, he is hugely proud of what he has achieved as an artist and is thrilled to be a role model for young black children.

He told The Times Weekend magazine: "There are young black kids who think there's always been a successful rapper in England because when they were ten I was making 'Pass Out'. That wasn't normal when I was growing up -- that's f***ing amazing.

"[People said] 'You're not the right class, you've not got the right surname'. My name is Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu -- it hasn't stopped me from meeting Prince Charles. We don't have to be in this greyness all the time. The world is big and there's so much going on. All I did was tell myself I was going to be successful -- I knew it."
