DJ Khaled’s son Asahd turned one in style. The youngster was the star of the show at his epic jungle-themed dance party on Oct. 22. His music producer dad is known for his extravagant parties, but this one takes the (birthday) cake!
The father of one, 41, and his fiancé Nicole Tuckreportedly dropped six figures to rent out Miami nightclub LIV at Fontainebleau, a club known for hosting celeb-filled bashes (think Kim Kardashian’s Halloween extravaganza in 2012.) The decorations were inspired by a classic childhood Disney favourite, The Lion King, making Asahd’s new life motto “Hakuna Matata”
And what’s a first birthday without a legendary industry guest? The celebratory event was co-hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs.
A birthday isn’t a birthday without some delicious cake, and Asahd was treated to the crème de la crème of the bakery world – a tiered cake decorated with pictures of himself. The guest of honour reveled in the limelight as he showed off some sweet dance moves while playing Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2018.
While it takes most industry professionals years to become producers, Asahd did it before his first birthday. He was named executive producer on daddy Khaled’s 10th studio album, Grateful—and he was even the cover model, too!
