The singer and rapper is nominated for British Male Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act, British Single and Album of the Year.

The South Londoner was overwhelmed by the news saying: "I don't know what to say, I don't know what to do, I don't know where to put my hands, I don't know if I'm sweating. It's crazy."

Tinie's close friend Plan B joins him in the Male Solo Artist category as well as going up against him for Best Single and Best Album, however the rapper wishes his friend well adding: "I just hope Tinie Tempah does well because I think he deserves it. I think me and him have been waving the flag for Great Britain."
