Naughty Boy has revealed that he’d like to work with prisoners, to help give them a fresh start.
The music producer has previously worked with huge stars like Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and former One Direction singer, Zayn Malik, but now wants to give something back, and help those in jail to make music.
Speaking to The Sun, the ‘La La La’ producer explains: “Coming out of there is sometimes the hardest thing in life.
“You can imagine that there are people in there who are writing songs and can sing and they feel like they have to give up because of where they are.”
He goes on to defend prisoners, insisting: “Whatever offence they’ve committed, everyone deserves a second chance. I want to make this year more about giving back and helping people.”
Earlier this week, Naughty Boy - real name Shahid Khan - found himself on the receiving end of a barrage of insults from his friend and collaborator, Zayn Malik.
After a music video - starring Zayn, to accompany a leaked track he recorded with Naughty Boy - began to appear online in bits and pieces, the ex-1D singer tweeted: “Someone learned how to upload a video… maybe now he should learn how to use logic.”
He also tweeted Naughty Boy directly , addressing him as a “fat joke”, adding: “Stop pretending we’re friends, no one knows you.”
