Things really picked up for Big Shaq aka Michael Daapah after appearing on BBC1 XTRA for the Charlie Sloth show. After performing his new single 'Man’s Not Hot' live, the track took off by smashing the UK’s Offical Charts and racking up over 65 million Youtube views for the music video (and becoming the number one Youtube trending video in only days). On top of that the record is currently being credited with having the lowest Spotify skip rate ever recorded for an urban record.
Becoming an international and online sensation overnight, his recent trip to America turned out to be filled with radio shows and interviews in NYC and a warm welcome at the BET Awards 2017. Big Shaq is also supported by names including Drake, DJ Khalid, Stormzy, and Giggs.
