If you are on social media, specifically Twitter or Facebook, you have certainly come across the popular phrase “the ting go skrrrraaa pa pa pa pa.” You have. You must have.
The line comes after a comedian’s alter ego rapper, Roadman Shaq, dropped the hilarious rap in the BBC 1Xtra program, and is now an internet sensation.
So who really is Roadman Shaq? Let’s start with the video that made him so popular.
Well, Roadman’s full name is Michael Dapaah; that’s right, he is a British-Ghanaian actor and comedian who makes hilarious skits via his Youtube channel.
He is 24-years-old and happens to be best friends with British-Ghanaian rapper Stormzy; and he attributes his talent and success to his family, especially his younger brother and older sister.
Since his rap went viral, Roadman Shaq has launched a merchandising business using the actual title of his rap ‘Mans not hot’ ( we know right), branded on T-shirts and such.
He released the rap as full song, and has already made it to top of charts list on Spotify and Apple Music.
Plus, he is now one of the best memes the internet has seen in a long while.
Did you also know his song is now a club banger? That is a shot to fame he definitely never expected.
