Music and fun that may be common in the home of DJ Khaled but they are not the only things that reign supreme. Education is also pivotal.

It is no wonder Khaled’s eldest son, Asahd Khaled, has added another accolade to his growing list of achievements.

The seven-year-old prodigy was recently honored as the “Student of the Month” at his school.

Asahd’s school, located in Miami, recognized his exceptional qualities. The award celebrates not only academic achievements but also character, leadership, and community involvement.

Asahd’s teachers praised his enthusiasm, creativity, and kindness toward classmates. His classmates adore him, often seeking his help with math problems or asking him to share his favorite tunes during recess.

The school held a special assembly to honor Asahd. DJ Khaled, accompanied by his wife, Nicole Tuck, attended the event.

Asahd stood on stage, beaming with pride, as the principal presented him with a certificate and a shiny gold star. The audience erupted in applause, and Asahd’s classmates cheered him on.

The excited father shared the news of his son’s achievement, likening the feeling to him winning a Grammy Award.

“Asahd is my inspiration. He’s got that lion spirit, always hungry for knowledge and success. When I heard he was named ‘Student of the Month,’ I felt like I won another Grammy!,”

Asahd is walking in his father’s footsteps

Asahd, whose name means “lion” in Arabic, has been captivating his father’s fan since his birth in October 2016.

Just like his dad, he has musical talent. His musical journey began early when he received a special gift from family friends, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, at just 4 months old.

The couple presented him with a miniature keyboard, kick-starting what appears to be a promising musical career following in his father’s footsteps.

Meanwhile, DJ Khaled may be enjoying life and owning big properties but it has not always been this rosy.

The renowned DJ, born Khaled Mohammed Khaled, once hit a financial quagmire and nearly lost his home in Miami.

In an interview, Khaled revealed that he found himself in a dire situation around 2015 because he was not “hustling smart.”
