DJ Khaled among starry guests at Red Sea International Film Festival awards ceremony

DUBAI: US Palestinian producer DJ Khaled capped his whirlwind Saudi Arabia trip with an appearance on the Red Sea International Film Festival red carpet on Thursday night, ahead of the event’s awards ceremony.

DJ Khaled was spotted on the red carpet alongside big names like Thai star Mew Suppasit, Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, Sweish American actor Joel Kinnaman, and Hollywood stars Antonio Banderas and Jackie Chan, and more. 

Last week, the popular DJ, rapper and record producer  made a surprise appearance at XP Music Futures in Riyadh, before his headlining performance at the region’s largest music festival, MDLBEAST SOUNDSTORM 2022.

The musician sat down in a panel with music producer Larry Jackson and American rapper Fat Joe to discuss the global music industry, their experiences as experts in the field and the bright future of Saudi talent.

The industry legend said at the event: “To come all the way to Saudi Arabia to be able to represent hip hop is a proud moment for me. I’ll speak from my own experience, coming from (being) in my garage with two turntables and a drum machine and a bunch of vinyl records to where I’m at now, it was something I knew I was going to do for the rest of my life.”
