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 Khaled, Noel Gallagher, and Liam Gallagher, while Danny Welbeck, Dua Lipa, Jeremy 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.
