Shao Dow is an independent rapper, manga author and occasional ninja. After studying Shaolin Kung Fu in China, Shao Dow utilised the tenacity and determination he learnt from his martial arts training to independently forge his music career. It’s little wonder Shao scooped the AIM Award for Hardest Working Artist – he has self-released three albums, created a headphones brand and published a manga book series through his own company, DiY Gang Entertainment. The London-born artist also appeared on ITV's Ninja Warrior UK and was invited into Parliament to speak on behalf of grassroots music venues across the country. Known to rap in both English and Japanese, Shao is hard to define as just a regular artist. He constantly blurs the lines between anime (Japanese-style animation), martial arts and his own music and has worked with icons such as Sean Schemmel (the voice actor for Goku - Dragon Ball Z) and featured on the first single from Tech N9ne’s latest album. When it comes to performing live, Shao delivers an unforgettable stage show. Mixing skilful lyricism, infectious beats and Kung Fu, he creates an unparalleled live experience. He has opened for

Tech N9ne, KRS-One, R.A. The Rugged Man, Ghetts, Stormzy, Skepta and more, while his live shows have taken him across the UK, Europe and Asia. Europe and Asia. A truly unique Fire in the Booth with Charlie Sloth is the jewel in the crown of a plethora of radio shows, including Radio 1, 1xtra, Capital Xtra and BBC 6 Music.
