People are still talking about Michael Dapaah's performance at the FIFA Best Awards, five years later

Zinedine Zidane's incredible reaction to the rapper's song was a big highlight.

A video of Michael Dapaah's performance at the 2018 Best FIFA Football Awards is going viral again; five years after 'Big Shaq' left Zinedine Zidane speechless.

The British actor, rapper and comedian gave a star-studded crowd inside London's Royal Festival Hall a special rendition of hit song Man's Not Hot.

It was a performance that begins with Dapaah giving several "I see you" shout-outs to the likes of Gareth Southgate, Didier Drogba, Ronaldinho, Kylian Mbappe and a delighted Luka Modric.

Moments later and 'Big Shaq' points to a puzzled Zinedine Zidane, who looked utterly baffled by the events unfolding before his very eyes. It makes for priceless viewing.

Dapaah goes on to greet singer Liam Gallagher in the crowd before shaking hands with former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who genuinely looked to be enjoying himself.

The 31-year-old's performance has been going viral on social media of late, with Twitter user george asking: "How did this actually happen."

Here's how the rest of social media reacted to the performance.

One fan said: "Can’t believe this is real," while another commented: "Lets be honest, none of us watched the full video because it's that cringey."

A third wrote: "The way Modric and Salah just awkwardly smiling through the whole handshake thing always got me."
