Tom Doyle, Smash Hits, 15 September 1993

He's the star of his TV show, The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air (the 16th biggest show in the States), he's made five rap LPs and had international hits with his sidekick Jazzy Jeff and his first movie, Made In America (with Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldberg) has just appeared in the cinemas.
