An old friend of Rap and R&B sensation Tinie Tempah has today revealed that his stage name does not reflect his personality.

Anthony Joseph, 23 from Plumstead, South London knew Tinie, real name Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu during their school days and feels the stage name he's chosen is the opposite of what he's really like and suggested that perhaps he should have called himself 'Large Patience'.

He explained "I remember the time we missed this bus we used to run for. I can recall being very angry, but Patrick just took it on the chin and sat calmly until the next one came along. Another ocassion on hearing the news that Patrick had got a record deal, he said to me, "Let's have a toast, celebration, get a glass out" but I couldn't find any clean glasses. So I had to wash some up, but it wasn't a problem for Patrick, he just waited, such patience".

Tinie Tempah has also been criticised in the media recently for making false references within his lyrics by claiming that he has "never been to Scunthorpe", this came to light when residents of the northern town contacted newspapers to report sightings of the rap star, with some wild suggestions of him actually performing there.
