Tinie Tempah to duet with Laura Mvula at Baftas

BAFTA SHOW: Tinie Tempah

BRITISH ARTISTS Tinie Tempah and Laura Mvula are set to perform together at this year's Baftas.

They have already worked with each other when Mvula provided vocals on Tempah’s track Heroes from his latest album Demonstration.

The 25-year-old rapper, whose real name is Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu, said: “I guess they are such prestigious awards and I've always dreamt of being there. I'm really excited and I'm going to wear a suit.”

“Laura has one of the best albums over the last two years for me.”

He added: “This has been a really good year for British actors and I couldn't think of a better time for me to go there and perform.

“There are people like Chiwetel Ejiofor who did 12 Years A Slave and Idris Elba for Mandela.

Mvula said: “I'm really excited to be opening the show with Tinie. It's been such an amazing year for film.”

Last year brought much success to the 27-year-old Birmingham songstress, who was a receptionist when she signed her first record deal, and rose to fame with her February 2013 song Green Garden.

The Baftas take place on February 16.
