Rapper was signed to a youth team

Tinchy Stryder would have become a footballer if his music career didn’t take off.

The rapper, real name Kwasi Danquah, says he was quite the athlete. 

‘I could’ve been a professional footballer,’ Tinchy, 22, tells Now.

‘I was really good when I was a kid. I was signed to the youth team at Wimbledon and I played there for a while.’

Tinchy‘s album Catch 22 is out now.
