We expected nothing less.
When DJ Khaled first announced that he had major plans for the first birthday of his first born, it was no bluff. Whether you’re fan or not, the pure joy that comes with any news of DJ Khaled and his right hand Asahd is pretty hard to beat, and this weekend as the young executive producer turns one, Asahd was celebrated with an enviable party at Miami’s Club LIV. As previously promised, Diddy was among thoseon the guest list and even serenaded the young Khaled, singing ‘Happy Birthday.’
While the weekend has proven to be successful, Asahd won’t officially celebrate his first revolution around the sun until Monday, October 23rd, and what a great year it’s been. It was this summer that he was credited as the sole executive producer on his father’s Grateful album—an effort that appeared on charts in 19 different countries, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 and went on to certify Platinum after pushing the equivalent of 1,000,000 units.
While the Khaleds celebrate, Asahd’s also sharing the wealth early on as some of the gifts received at his party will be donated to UNICEF as DJ Khaled donates $5,000 in Asahd’s name to the organization as well. Currently a fund has been put into place to collect items for UNICEF through the Khaled familu as they round up items that include fleece blankets, story books, and Super Hero Packs: a collection of vaccines that protect children in need against Measles, Tetanus, and Polio. The packs also come with one vaccine carrier and mosquito nets.
"Me and my daddy @djkhaled are working with @UNICEF to honor the world’s children and celebrate my 1st birthday,” writes a post on Asahd’s Instagram account. “ALL children deserve the right to receive gifts so we are asking #fanluv to make a donation to UNICEF on my behalf. HELP! Donate today! through the link in my bio 🙏🏼”
