Jahmaal Noel Fyffe[1] (born 26 November 1990 in Edmonton, London) is a solo grime artist. He is from Tottenham, England. He is best known by the stage name Chipmunk, which started as a nickname given to him by his friend, where he grew up, referring to the unusual shape of his teeth. He adopted the nickname in remembrance after the younger boy was killed. While co-presenting Switch on BBC Radio 1, Chipmunk stated that he would eventually change his stage name, possibly to Mr. Munk (an alias which he already uses). He won the Best UK Newcomer at the MOBO Awards 2008.[2] He also won Best Hip-Hop Act at the MOBO Awards 2009, overcoming US stars such as Jay-Z, Kanye West and Eminem[3].
