THESE days he makes hits for Beyoncé and Sam Smith but Naughty Boy says he’ll always thank one man for his chart stardom… TV presenter Noel Edmonds.
The 32-year-old La La La musician (pictured) said he’d be nowhere if it wasn’t for his successful run on Noel’s Deal Or No Deal game show ten years ago, when he scooped an impressive £44,000.
The record producer — real name Shahid Khan — said he invested the dosh into his hopes of becoming a success in the music industry.
‘I went on there in 2007, I had £10 in my bank account, and I won. Thank you Noel,’ he told Kiss FM.
‘Deal Or No Deal was important to me, I got £44,000 out of it. I made use of the money, I built a studio and gave some to my mum and dad.’
