Being a dad brings out the best in most men and DJ Khaled is certainly one of them. By Lebogang Madileng

DJ Khaled is a multi-award winning hip-hop DJ, and last year in October, he added something else to his list of achievements – he became a dad of Asahd Khaled (six months old). We are more than happy for the 41-year-old artist.

He documented all the special moments of the birth of his son and posted them on Snapchat.

Watch the video below:

DJ Khaled brought Asahd to the Grammy Awards when he was just four months old.

They even wore matching suits. How cute!

He made his son the executive producer of his upcoming album Grateful.

That’s right, Asahd is not even a year old but he is already building a career in the music industry just like his dad. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, DJ Khaled explained how his son expresses himself about a song that he likes or dislikes. Khaled says that when he notices Asahd swaying, bobbing and smiling along, the song is “a smash-hit record”, and when his son grimaces, the track is a “serious record with substance” that’s sure to be a hit.

He regularly posts pictures of Asahd with captions that express his love for him.

He gives his son motivational talks.

Looks like you’re never too young to receive a pep talk, well, at least that’s what DJ Khaled believes. “You’re going to be the biggest mogul ever, you’re going to be anything you want to be. You’re a legend” – these are some of the things that DJ Khaled told his son on a video on Asahd’s Instagram account. Check it out here.
