Tinie Tempah Talks About "That" High Five
The 'Pass Out' star thinks it's a shame Guy and Howard missed out on winning a BRIT this year.
Tinie Tempah has told Capital that it was a "history" making moment for him to perform at the BAFTAs this month.
The rapper opened the show alongside Laura Mvula and was blown away by the reaction.
"It was history for me and it's something that I'll always remember," he told Max.
Tinie was also seen enjoying a high-five with Prince William and he shared his love for the second generation of the Royal Family.
"Honestly, I've met his Royal Highness on a few occasions and the one thing I always feel about the Royal Family, especially the second generation, they are very down to earth people," Tinie explained. "They seem like they're constantly trying to connect with people and show that they're real."
He also moved on to discuss last week's BRIT Awards and admitted it was a shame to see Disclosure miss out on the prizes.
"I feel like their album was the album of the summer last year," he declared. "It definitely gave people like a feel-good moment. It brought back that whole nostalgia of garage, house and all that kind of stuff.
"Award shows are award shows. I feel like it's a shame. I feel they definitely deserved something. When things like that happen you have to go away and be humble about it and try even harder next time. I feel like these guys are all going to have very long careers and they'll be around for a long time. Hopefully next year [they'll win]."
Tinie also spoke of his admiration for Ellie Goulding – who went home with the Best British Female Solo Artist prize.
Meananwhile, Tinie is currently preparing to hit the road for his biggest UK tour to date.
He will play a series of shows across the country, including London's O2 Arena on March and April.
