British DJ Naughty Boy is the new favourite for people voting which celebrity does the trials on I’m A Celebrity. As a result of being on the show, fans want to know more about him.
Naughty Boy is addressed with his stage name by everybody on I’m A Celebrity and while there’s no doubt most children have been called a ‘naughty boy’ or ‘girl’ by their parents, this isn’t his real name.
Naughty Boy was born Shahid Khan 1st January 1985 in Watford, Hertfordshire. His parents are originally from Pakistan. Naughty Boy says he’s proud of this heritage and grew up listening to Pakistani music and watching Pakistani films.
Naughty Boy is Muslim. Ahead of appearing on I’m A Celebrity, he revealed that he’s excited to shine a light on being a British-Pakistani Muslim and that his mum, Zahida, told him to keep praying during his time in the castle.
Naughty Boy is estimated to be worth £3 million in 2021.
Naughty Boy started producing music in 2009 and released his debut album Hotel Cabana in 2013, which featured the hit single ‘La La La.’
The 36-year-old now runs his own record label: Naughty Boy Recordings. He’s worked with numerous other artists on their albums such as Emilie Sande, Leona Lewis, Cheryl Cole, Tinie Tempah and ex-One Direction member Zayn Malik, to name a few.
We bet you didn’t know that the ‘La La La’ singer won £44,000 on ITV’s Deal or No Deal and spent the money on making a recording studio in his parents’ garden? This wasn’t long after he dropped out of studying business and marketing at university. Prior to winning the money on the game show, he had secured £5,000 worth of funding from the Princes Trust to help him set up his music production business.
