The London rapper, who is on course to top the UK singles chart with debut 'Pass Out', has reportedly been tipped for global success.
"It is a crazy time right now," he told The Sun.
"It has all happened so quickly. I went to the Brits with them and signed on the dotted line the next day. I've said right from the start that I want to go global."
The star revealed that he has been given advice from JLS singer Marvin Humes about coping with the limelight.
"Marv has been great. We are both from Plumstead in South East London and have a lot of mutual friends so he has been backing me ever since he heard the song," he said.
Tempah has reportedly reworked a version of Alison Moyet's 'Love Resurrection' for his upcoming debut album.
