Drake shows Big Shaq ''a lot of love''.

The 26-year-old rapper - whose full name is Michael Dapaah - has admitted the 'Hotline Bling' hitmaker is a huge supporter of him and often messages the artist over social media.

Speaking to The Daily Star newspaper, the 'Balance' vocalist said: ''Drake has been following me for a while, he shows a lot of lobe and we speak via DM all the time.''

But the Canadian singer is not the only musician who has reached out to the MC, as Akon has also been in contact and has asked Big Shaq to ''connect'' as soon as their busy schedules permit.

he continued: ''I spoke to Akon on FaceTime recently and he was just like: 'Yo man we need to connect before I leave England.''

Big Shaq recently released the hit record 'Man's Not Hot' , which has since gone viral, and he has admitted people cannot believe he is ''real'' and genuinely created the comical track.

Speaking about the response to the song, he said: ''They don't believe that I am real, they touch me and they're like 'Oh my god you are actually real' and I'm like: 'Yeah well, what did you think? It's just me.'''
