A 13-year-old Dublin schoolboy, whose rap video has gone viral on social media, says he is "dealing very well" with his online fame.

More than 1.9 million people have watched Ste Brown perform "Noggin" since it was uploaded on Wednesday to Twitter.

The song takes listeners on a journey of the best things in Sallynoggin, Co Dublin, including the local chipper and barbers.

Ste Brown said it has been a crazy week, but he is coping well with his newfound fame.

"My phone's hopping now and it just keeps going," he said.

"I've been out and all just to keep my mind off it and just get away from it for a little bit.

"So I'm dealing with it very well. It's alright, it is."
