Big Shaq releases “Man Don’t Dance”, his first single since “Man’s Not Hot”

He’s only gone and done it again

Unveiling his brand new single “Man Don’t Dance”, global sensation Big Shaq (comedian Michael Dapaah) makes it perfectly clear that he does not bust a move, although he does pop a little two-step when tested.

Following up last year’s behemoth “Man’s Not Hot”, on his latest single he’s still spitting those sure fire bars. Opening with the lines: “I like my eggs with the yolk (scrambled ting)/ But please don’t burn my toast,” you know from the off what to expect from the comedy roadman.

Giving the world what it truly needs for the summer, on “Man Don’t Dance” the ‘untouchable’ lyricist travels to Dubai, finds love, and even – dare we say it – takes off his jacket.

“What’s the best line on the song?” I hear you ask. Wow, there’s too many to choose from but if I was forced to pick just one it would probably be:

“She wants me to be her bloke (baby boy)/ But she can’t cook Sunday roast (shocking).”

BARS! Who’s fucking with that? Absolutely no one!
