Shao Dow is a professional rapper, manga author and possible ninja.
Equipped with a law degree and having studied Shaolin Kung Fu in China, Shao Dow utilises the tenacity and determination he learned from his martial arts training to independently forge his music career.
It’s little wonder Shao scooped the 2017 AIM Award for Hardest Working Artist – he has self-released three albums, which have sold more than 25,000 copies, created a headphones brand and published a book through his own company, DiY Gang Entertainment. The London-born artist makes a full-time living from his music, manga and merchandise and has even appeared on ITV's Ninja Warrior UK. He was recently invited into Parliament to speak on behalf of grassroots music venues across the country.
Shao Dow has opened for the likes of Tech N9ne, KRS-One, Wiley, Ghetts, Stormzy, Skepta and more, while his live shows have taken him across the UK, 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 and BBC 6 Music.
“One of the hardest workers I’ve ever met in this”

DJ Semtex (Captial Xtra)
