Inside look at Swiss WorldCargo (SWC 6)

Swiss WorldCargo Team

The arrival of the San Francisco-liveried aircraft model in Miami marks the end of our “Inside look at Swiss WorldCargo (SWC 3)” blog. We hope it offered an insight into our airfreight business. And maybe you’ll think, when you’re next seated in a SWISS cabin, that’s it’s not just your suitcase that’s being carried beneath you: it could also be a dog, food or even a car.

If you’d like further information about Swiss WorldCargo, you’ll find this here and on our air cargo blog.

His first single „Pass Out“ as well as his debut album went straight No. 1 in the UK. Meanwhile, he even won two Brit Awards. Besides his command of words and his broad spectrum of sounds, from Rap to R&B to Dance, Tinie Tempah persuades also with fantastic featurings of international superstars. For SWISS, he compiled an eclectic musical mix and told us a bit more about himself and his amazing work.

Where does the name “Tinie Tempah” come from?
I literally just went through a thesaurus with a mate, we looked under anger and saw temper. I thought I should put something in front of that and Tinie Tempah came to me. I went out to the playground, age 14 that day, and was like “don’t call me Patrick anymore, I’m Tinie Tempah from now on”.

How did it all started with you becoming an artist?
When I was twelve years old, the wish came up to become an MC. Back then, the So Solid Crew shot a music video next to my place. When I saw them doing it, I knew that this is exactly what I want to do with my life.
