DJ Khaled, Miami hip-hop personality and King of Snapchat, was given the keys to Carol City Middle School Thursday. With his penchant for inspirational talks, dubbed “keys to success,” Khaled was invited to be principal for a day at the school after it won a nationwide attendance contest.
Naturally, Khaled captured the whole thing on Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram.
Here’s how Khaled’s day went:
“Miami Carol City Middle School, I’m on my way.”
The students designed a poster for Khaled featuring a key (his favorite emoji) and some of his maxims: “Don’t let anyone take you off your path of success!”
He read the morning announcements.
He met some pageant queens.
He felt Chief pride.
He took selfies with screaming kids.
He pledged to donate lunch from his restaurant Miami Finga Lickin and $10,000 for instruments.
And the City of Miami Gardens proclaimed Jan. 20 DJ Khaled Day!
It was a good day for DJ Khaled.
