DJ Khaled To Host Nickelodeon's 2019 Kids' Choice Awards

“Father of Asahd is here to let you know the biggest party of the year is about to go up!" 

DJ Khaled is taking on a new endeavor all for the kids. The multi-hyphenate music man is hosting the annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards this year. His main reason for taking the new gig is his adorable two year-old son, Asahd.

"The reason why I wanted to be the host of the Kids' Choice Awards is because I'm a father,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Now, I'm going to be able to host and my son can see me host and be like, 'My daddy's hosting [the] Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.' And not just that, I'm about the young world, the future, the kids. Anything that makes the kids happy, that's what I'm about."

In addition to bringing some green slime and probably some keys to success to the kids, it’s worth mentioning how stiff the competition is this year among award nominees. Some notable nominations include Black Panther with five nominations, Cardi B and Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation with four nominations each. Other nominees include Jason Momoa, James Corden, Tyra Banks, Bebe Rexha and Noah Centineo among others.

Amid his hosting duties, Khaled is also being nominated for three Kids’ Choice Awards. In the past, he’s been nominated for Favorite Song and Favorite Male Artist for “I’m the One” featuring Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper and Quavo.

Khaled is sure that he won’t disappoint and will bring in a great show. “It's gonna be the biggest Kids' Choice Awards ever,” he said. “It's gonna be hard, very hard, I'm going to set the bar high, for host. Whosever hosting after this, I'm sure they're gonna do a great job, and I'm gonna take nothing away from them, but the bar's gonna be set high, because I'm coming!"

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
