So, in this country there’s been a massive buzz around Muhammed Shahid Nazir aka The One Pound Fish Man but we really thought it would stop here. Really.

But this morning our French colleague was looking through French newspaper Les Echos and who did she come across? East London’s very own One Pound Fish Man. Now, this isn’t some random gossipy newspaper either, it’s a pretty serious one.

Many people are saying that his single could probably beat X Factor winner’s James Arthur song to the number one spot for Christmas… but could it possibly gain more success than a UK number one?

You may not understand the French article but from the words in the headline, they’re clearly calling him a phenomenon and likening his song to Gangnam Style. The same Gangnam Style which has over 900 million views on YouTube!

Could the One Pound Fish song really be that big?
