Binley Mega Chippy attracts thousands of customers from across Britain and the world after a fan raved about it on social media.
Owner Kamal Gandhi, 70, has now seen his profits soar by 30 per cent, with queues of fans regularly seen outside.
Junior was seen performing his new song Slide off the now famous chippy.
It began: ‘I see with my two eyes, something that begins with B’.
The video then switched to Junior standing outside the fish and chip vendor as the words ‘Binley Mega Chippy’ played over plinky-plonk music.
The clip quickly went viral on TikTok with over 2.6 million people watching it.

Kamal employs eight to ten family members to help run the popular eating establishment.
He has met people from Australia, Ireland, and even a tourist from Texas, USA.
Junior’s debut single Slide has gone down very well with fans, with one commenting, “What a tune!” while his father, musician Peter, 49, said he “couldn’t be more proud.”

It comes after Peter previously praised his son Junior when discussing the teenager who followed in his footsteps and embarked on a music career.
The Mysterious Girl singer appeared virtually on Lorraine last month, telling host Christine Lampard he’s “proud but also scared” for his budding musician son.
During the conversation, Peter explained, “I took him into the studio and he got up in the booth and everyone was like ‘oh!’ And I was like ‘look, let’s just focus on him for now.’
Peter revealed that he’s his manager in a way, but wants to make sure he’s free to do his thing, saying, “I’m handling it in the sense that I’m right there with him all the time.” We want to give you some artistic freedom.
The father of four appeared on the Australian singing competition New Faces at the age of 16 and rose to fame with his singles Mysterious Girl and Flava.
It seems like Junior is emulating his father’s career, as he’s been teasing new music for the past few months with studio snaps, at the same age his father stepped into the spotlight.
Peter admitted he had some fears but understood his son, explaining: “I’m proud to be scared too, at 16 that’s what I wanted, my parents were scared and I had to show them I’d be okay.”
But more than 30 years later, Peter has seen more of the industry and shared that he knows ‘both sides’, as he told Christine: ‘I’ve seen the good and the bad in the industry. I know the pitfalls.
