DJ Khaled thanked God for putting him on earth “to be a light” as he was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The multi-award winning producer and performer said he wanted his award to represent “the love that shines on everyone” and promised that he was “just getting started”.

The musician, real name Khaled Mohammed Khaled, was presented with the accolade on Monday by US rapper Fat Joe and Puff Daddy, and was joined by famous faces including music mogul Jay-Z.

Wearing a bright orange suit, he said: “I’m not a regular type of person, I’m a different type… There’s only one Khaled.

“I want my star to represent the light, the love that shines on everyone. God put me on earth to be a light.

“The room can be pitch dark and when I walk in it’s bright. When it’s dark I’m the light and when it’s the light I’m a brighter light.

“So I want everyone to take this star light and know that this is forever and this is for all of us.

He continued: “This is for hip hop but I want to make it clear we are just getting started.

“That’s why I always say we’re the best and scream and keep going because it’s not just me, it’s we.”
