We couldn't turn on that famous Aussie sunshine in the middle of an icy Melbourne winter for him - but despite the cold, US hip hop sensation Chiddy Bang has nothing but warm love for his Aussie fans!

"It's cool!" he said of his trip Down Under to perform exclusively at our MTV Winter event.

"This is my second time [coming to Australia] right now, the people are extremely nice, they take care of you, show you good hospitality.

"I'm mad I came in the Winter time! But it's enjoyable."

The star, whose hits include 'Opposite of Adults,' 'Ray Charles' and the brand new track 'Mind Your Manners' featuring Gym Class Heroes frontman Travie McCoy, will take to the stage tonight alongside Ruby Rose, Alison Wonderland and Jay from 'Geordie Shore' at our MTV Winter event in Melbourne.

And for those of you who didn't manage to nab tickets to MTV Winter, don't stress! You'll be able to catch Chiddy Bang in action when they return to play Parklife festival later this year.

"I came here for Parklife the first time and I got to tour and see different cities like Sydney and Gold Coast and Adelaide, it's definitely fun," said Chiddy.

"And I'm coming back for Parklife again, so I'll be back here in September!"
