Tinie Tempah and Anthony Joshua enjoy bromance at GQ Men of the Year Awards

By  | 

Rapper Tinie Tempah and heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua were having the most fun at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.

The pair, who were both born in Britain to Nigerian parents, posted a video of themselves comparing shoes. Tinie exclaimed: “They say we shouldn’t wear loafers with no socks. What does that mean?”

The anti-sock friends have a history.

In 2013, Anthony told The Sun he wanted Tinie to support him in a fight. He said: “If I could get a rapper out with me, I’ll probably go with Tinie Tempah, because he’s UK and I like the way he carries himself.

“He’s a conscious man and he’s doing his thing.”

Then last year Tinie and Anthony hung out with Brit actor Idris Elba.
