A chance encounter with US rapper Coolio has led to two students from the Isle of Man being swept up in a viral media storm.

Melissa Bryan and Lorcan O’Mahony are studying at the University of Central Lancashire.

They met the American musician in a club in Preston earlier this week – the following night the 50-year-old came round to their student house and cooked them a three course meal.

Coolio then treated the group to an acoustic jamming session including a version of his most iconic hit Gangsta’s Paradise – the video of which has now gone viral.

Melissa says the whole experience is surreal and has attracted attention from across the pond:
