Upon matriculating from a local high school, he enrolled at Brunel University from which he graduated in 2014, earning his Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre, Film and Television studies. Besides these, he also briefly attended the National Youth Theatre. Upon graduation, he began working for Vodafone before deciding to pursue full time his career in the virtual world. He started by releasing a series of comedy skits, which later overgrew his own “mockumentary” YouTube series, entitled “SWIL” (Somewhere in London), which follows four Londoners on their path to stardom. The series quickly amassed a large number of viewers, adding lots of subscribers to Michael Dapaah’s official YouTube channel, and providing the basis for Big Shaq’s current net worth.
However, to greater prominence Big Shaq came in September 2017 when he was featured in Charlie Sloth’s radio segment “Fire in the Both”, aired on BBC Radio 1Xtra, and freestyled his now globally famous lyrics ‘Man’s Not Hot’ and ‘the thing goes…’. The video became viral overnight, launching an avalanche of countless internet memes on various social networks, ranking Big Shaq among the most popular internet stars and personas of the year. On 22nd September, the studio version of the song was released and quickly settled in the UK Top 100 chart.

It is certain that these achievements have provided the majority of Big Shaq’s current net worth.
For all his efforts, Big Shaq was honored with the African Pride’s Comedian of the Year Award as well as with the Best Black British Comedian Award by the Black British Entertainment. His latest commercial success with the whole “Man’s Not Hot” buzz also brought popularity to his previous on-camera works, resulting in a huge inflow to his YouTube channel, which currently counts more than 548,000 subscribers.
