A Nigerian rapper has found TikTok fame with catchy rap videos he posts after Manchester United games.
Dr Barz’s most popular clip, ‘Man United Anthem’, has clocked up an impressive 1.7 million views on TikTok so far. The United fan jumps online to share his thoughts after each game and, with the Red Devils’ good run of form lending him plenty of material which has connected with fellow fans.
In it, the lyricist raps: “It was all a dream, I used to dream of this kind of team. Now I’m feeling alright cause the squad tight. Not just getting paid, they ball hard in every game.”
Dr Barz started to create rap videos as a way of channelling his frustrations over United’s position in the Premier League at the start of the season. And he found an army of fellow fans thought he’d summed up the mood perfectly!
“After the loss we had on the first day of the season it was crazy and I knew I had to do something, you know,” he said. “I think the first video the direct message is to the club, you know, to the owners to say this is how we feel as fans.
“I had a couple of fans who were like, ‘Yes, right on that’s exactly how we feel’ and I felt good about that.”
His latest ‘diss track’ came about after United lost 3-2 to Arsenal in the league.
He rapped: “I’m the definition of a team that can never die. And if you try and bring me down, you’ll forever try. Realise.
“Now watch as Saka massacre like an attacker should. We let you score like two so show us some gratitude.”
Dr Barz’s creative lyrics and sturdy flow don’t seem to be coming to a stop anytime soon, having seen the team’s ‘bright future’, with United currently fourth in the Premier League and on course for a Carabao Cup final place. The rapper says his high hopes for the rest of the season are reflected in his latest posts.
“I feel like something is going to happen having seen the team’s chemistry now, having seen the teams tactics are better” he said.
“I like what the manager is doing, I like the direction we’re going into, we just need the board to back the manager too.”
Dr Barz reassures fans there will definitely be ‘a lot more’ team anthems this season.
