Big Shaq Ties the Knot and Finally Takes Off His Jacket In the Video for 'Mans Don't Dance'

Big Shaq shows that "mans can change" in his latest music video.

Michael Dapaah, better known as his grime rapper alter-ego, Big Shaq dropped "Mans Don't Dance," the highly-anticipated follow-up to his viral hit "Man's Not Hot" last month, and today he shares the video for the new single.

Big Shaq shows real growth in the music video by finally taking off his jacket—despite his earlier claims that "mans can never be hot." He also gets married to Biritsh radio DJ Snoochie Shy. Although he's made real progress in other areas, he still doesn't dance though—even when surrounded by a group of graceful ballerinas. He does, however "one two step and slide" during his wedding ceremony, so there's still hope.


The video, directed by British-Nigerian director Daps—who plays the marriage officiant—and Dapaah himself, is about as playful and hilarious as you'd expect from a Big Shaq production.
