DJ Khaled took on the role of principal for a day at a Miami school to celebrate the student body winning an award for attendance.

Carol City Middle school came first-place in a national attendance contest, winning them a visit from the ‘We The Best’ producer, as well as some laptops.

During an assembly, Khaled announced that he would be donating $10,000 in instruments to the school’s music department and providing lunch from his local fast food restaurant Miami Finga Licking.


According to the Miami Herald, Khaled imparted some of his signature words of wisdom to the students: “You are all winners,” adding, “The key is to win more.”

Yesterday, the city of Miami officially declared January 20 “DJ Khaled Day”. The producer revealed the news in a Snapchat video, writing in a caption: “Thank u so much !!! Miami!! My home that I love so much !!! #Wethebest”.

Khaled already holds a key to the city of Miami, which he was awarded in October last year.
