Sound: "The ting goes skrrrahh, pap, pap, ka-ka-ka, Skidiki-pap-pap, and a pu-pu-pudrrrr-boom, Skya, du-du-ku-ku-dun-dun, Poom, poom, you dun know"
Remember the time you first saw the love of your life? It's okay, we don't either. But if you're lucky enough to have been sober, you might recall it was a feeling that words can't even capture. That spark felt like bullets shooting off inside you, bouncing around, and entering every organ. The previous line didn't sound too romantic inside a card so we brought in Big Shaq's signature "the tings goes skraa" to make it sexier.
On 29 August 2017, comedian Michael Dapaah went on BBC Radio 1Xtra as his character Roadman Shaq for the Charlie Sloth-hosted "Fire in the Booth" segment. His freestyle on the instrumental of 67 and Giggs' 2016 track "Let's Lurk" went viral.
The lyrics "the ting goes skrrrahh, pap, pap, ka-ka-ka. Skibiki-pap-pap, and a pu-pu-pudrrrr-boom. Skya, du-du-ku-ku-dun-dun. Poom, poom." became a staple 2017 meme.
In response to the popularity, Michael Dapaah changed his rapper name to "Big Shaq", and converted his freestyle into a song called "Man's Not Hot", released on September 22, 2017.
That spark you feel when you first meet the love of your life can't be put into words, but it can be captured as that ting goes skraaaa from Big Shaq's Mans Not Hot.
