Today, global sensation Big Shaq (written and performed by comedian Michael Dapaah) unveils his brand new video for ‘Man Don’t Dance’. After teasing the video with a number of celebrity endorsements (wishing Big Shaq congratulations for his and Snoochie Shy’s wedding, which takes place in the video) from the likes of Giggs, Idris Elba, Maya Jama, Max Branning (Eastenders), Paul Pogba, Julie Adenuga, Tyson Fury, Raheem Sterling, Dele Ali, Jesse Lingard and more. The music video for the track also contains cameos from Chicken Shop Dates’ Amelia Dimoldenberg and Chip (Chipmunk).


Since Island Records gave Dapaah’s hilarious persona, upcoming and coming MC Big Shaq, the chance to finally release his debut single ‘Man’s Not Hot’ back in October, he has fast permeated into the mainstream from viral phenomenon. With over 170 million streams, 2.7 million monthly listeners on Spotify and 264 million YouTube views, Big Shaq, aka Michael Dapaah, shows no signs of slowing down. 


Giving the world what it truly needs for Summer, the untouchable lyricist is back with a brand new single for 2018. ‘Man Don’t Dance’ sees the South London ‘roadman’ parody travel to Dubai, find love, and even - dare we say it - take off his jacket.


Big Shaq’s unprecedented success has so far seen him cement himself in history as the highest charting debut act of 2017, after first crashing Charlie Sloth’s ‘Fire In The Booth’ (BBC Radio 1Xtra show). Since then, the London-based rapper has appeared in the opening segment for the biggest night in British music, The BRIT Awards 2018, garnered endorsements from the likes of Drake, Usain Bolt, DJ KhaledNoel Gallagher, and Liam Gallagher, while Danny WelbeckDua LipaJeremy Corbyn and Nicole Scherzinger have all made reference ‘Man’s Not Hot’ lyrics. 


Big Shaq has played to audiences across the world (Europe, America, Russia, and Asia) - his most notable last London show - a Christmas special dubbed ‘Big Shaq and Friends’, brought Stormzy, JME, Lethal Bizzle, Krept & Konan and more to share the stage at Brixton’s Electric.Fans will also be able to catch him at festivals throughout the summer including Wireless and Reading & Leeds.
