Zayn Malik accepted a trophy at the Asian Awards in London for Outstanding Achievement in Music. The singer received the award because of his Pakistani heritage.
Sporting a newly shaved head, the singer was escorted to the event by his mother. It’s his first major appearance after leaving the massively popular boyband One Direction in order to be ” a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight.” Except when he’s NOT out of the spotlight, of course.
