Happy Birthday Kris Fade
Wow! That’s the only word to sum up exactly how I felt last week after being absolutely spoiled for my birthday! I had well wishes from like a million listeners on the Breakfast show and was shocked by my trusty team’s extremely sneaky but super-sweet surprises.
First of all, let me thank Big Rossi and Priti for organising so much for me. That pair are priceless and I’m so happy that I get to wake up Dubai with them every morning. They made my birthday special by getting a host of celebrities to ring me up and not only wish me a great day, but also to serenade me. Former Lil Wayne associate Jay Sean called up and sang and so did Craig David – that was surreal.
Team Ahlan! very nearly brought me to tears with a special cover that they had made just for me! Group Editor Sarah came to the studio and told me that even though this honour is usually reserved for staff who have retired from the magazine, Ahlan! decided to make an exception this time around. I also got a wicked cake from my musical partner in crime, Two Tone, who used a picture of me, himself and our CD cover for the decoration.
Finally, The Ride Home host Brent Black outdid himself by getting me a real live donkey! That’s right, he gave me a donkey for my big day and now it’s living with me at my villa. No birthday would be complete without a big bash, so I had to invite all my nearest and dearest to my party at Cirque le Soir. I won’t reveal how old I am, but I definitely felt the effects of ageing the morning after!
