English rapper Tinie Tempah made it clear he was happy to be
in Dunedin for the first time when he played at Forsyth Barr
Stadium last night.
''I woke up this morning to find myself on the front page of
the Otago Daily Times. I've made it. I'm here,'' he told the
crowd of more than 6500 adoring fans.
The rapper had the already buzzing crowd bouncing
immediately, with the stadium quickly becoming a sea of
bobbing hands pointing towards the roof.
Tempah was supported by dance acts Sub Focus and Chase and
Otago University Students' Association event manager Dan
Hendra said last night's after-party topped off a successful
O-Week line-up, with about 29,000 tickets sold for events
held at the stadium.
