The Pass Out star, who scooped the gongs for British breakthrough act and British single, couldn't even get a seated ticket at the star-studded ceremony last year.

"My biggest fear is losing touch with why I began doing music. I don't want to become blinded by the lights, so I keep the same people around me I started with," he told the Daily Mirror.

"I never want to lose the connection with my family. They keep me grounded."

Tinie plans to treat his relatives to a slap-up meal at his favourite Nigerian restaurant in South London to celebrate his awards haul.

He added: "Last year I couldn't even get a seat at the Brits. I literally had to beg to get a ticket and stand."
