His father has so much love for him that Khaled’s next album is titled Father Asahd. Of course, as a child, Asahd does not carry much responsibility. Perhaps he has to clean up his toys every once in a while and eat his vegetables. Regardless, the child spent his Labor Day Weekend relaxing from all the stress in his life, getting a massage, watching his favorite show and ignoring his father.

We can’t say we blame him either as his dad can get pretty annoying at times.
