Tinie Tempah Joins MTV Staying Alive!

19 March 2015
Today marks a special day for the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, as they unveil their brand spanking new ambassador, global superstar, Tinie Tempah.

That’s right; the Written In The Stars rapper will be joining the likes of Kelly Rowland, Keri Hilson, and Becca Dudley to join MTV Staying Alive in the global fight against HIV.

As ambassador, Tinie will represent MTV Staying Alive on a global scale, acting as the spokesperson and face of the organisation.

HIV/AIDS is not only the number one killer of adolescents in Africa, 42% of all new HIV infections occur in young people.

Tinie will help MTV Staying Alive increase awareness of HIV/AIDS and raise funds to boost the charity’s youth-focussed HIV-prevention work around the world.



HIV is an issue close to the rapper’s heart, and Tinie—real name Patrick Okogwu—has been outspoken about why he chose to represent MTV Staying Alive, saying:

““If we’re going to end HIV, then we need to raise awareness and get people talking. I think it’s my duty, and the duty of other artists, to use their platform and their voice for social good. I can’t wait to help MTV Staying Alive positively impact the lives of young people around world.”

In his first duty as ambassador, Tinie is set to headline MTV Staying Alive’s exclusive funding-raising event, Found in London on May 14, 2015. Get tickets to this exclusive event here.
