Dappy loves fishing
Dappy loves fishing because it reminds him of his late father.
The ‘No Regrets’ rapper is a keen angler and he got his passion for the pastime from his dad, Mungo Jerry musician Byron Contostavlos – who managed Dappy’s group N-Dubz until his death in April 2007.
Dappy goes fishing as often as he can because he finds the hobby comforting.
He told Time Out magazine: “Fishing is everything to me. I’ve been doing it pretty much since I come out of my mum’s womb … It’s something I always used to do with pops (dad).
“Anyone who says that badman can’t fish is wrong. Not that I’m a badman. I keep fishing reel!”
People are always surprised when the 25-year-old musician reveals his passion for catching fish.
Dappy – who is joined in N-Dubz by ‘X Factor’ judge Tulisa Contostavlos and Fazer – insists there are many layers too his personality, despite his bad boy reputation.
He said: “There’s a lot more to me man. I’m not stupid. I know all my times tables. I know how to spell. I know how to read and write. I could tell you some s**t about the Illuminati and then you’d think, ‘S**t this guy knows a lot.’ “
