It seems Ghanaian born UK acts have the UK grime scene under wraps. Joining the ranks of Sway, Bizzle and others is Tinchy Stryder. The grime vocalist Tinchy has knocked dance pop star Calvin Harris off the top of the UK singles chart.
Number 1, which co-stars N-Dubz, was a new entry for the 21-year-old, whose real name is Kwasi Danquah. "It's just sinking in - it's mad. It's a great feeling," Stryder told BBC Radio One on hearing the news. It is the first time a single called Number 1 has reached the top spot.
Other artists who tried and failed include Goldfrapp, Pharell and EYC. Elsewhere in the singles chart, La Roux stayed at number two with In For The Kill while Harris dropped to number three with I'm Not Alone.
Lady GaGa's Poker Face dropped to four but her album, The Fame, stayed at number one. Depeche Mode's Sounds of the Universe was the highest-charting new album, at two.
