The Story of Naughty Boy.
To find out more about the UK's hottest producer, tune in to listen to the BBC Radio documentary which will premiere this Sunday 18th August on BBC 1 Xtra.
From Deal or No Deal to Number 1 selling producer and artist, this is the story of how Shahid Khan, AKA Naughty Boy, the son of Pakistani immigrants, became one of the UK's most sought after producers, producing the UK's biggest selling album of 2012 and 2013, Emeli Sandé's 'Our Version Of Events', and the biggest selling British single of the year, 'La La La'.
Naughty Boy's story is both inspirational and intriguing. Whilst working as a pizza delivery boy and making beats for up and coming MCs, Naughty Boy applied for a grant to the Prince's Trust and also to be a contestant in the game show Deal or No Deal. He was granted £5,000 from the Prince's Trust and he won £44,000 on Deal or No Deal!
Naughty used this money to set up his recording studio and record label. After meeting Emeli Sande at a BBC Radio 1Xtra event, the two formed a strong working relationship and started writing songs for the likes of Wiley and Chipmunk, before working together on Emeli's debut album, 'Our Version of Events', which became 2012's biggest selling record in the UK. He has since worked with Rhianna, Professor Green, Cheryl Cole, Sam Smith and Wretch 32 to name but a few.
The Story of Naughty Boy features exclusive interviews from some of today's hottest UK stars: Emeli Sande, Professor Green, James Arthur, George The Poet, Sam Smith, Bashy, Wretch 32, Tinie Tempah and Chipmunk. Hear how Naughty overcame the challenges to reach the top in one of the hardest industries in the world - the music industry; and find out how a dream can become a reality. After all, every reality starts with a dream.
