The star-studded night was made even more memorable when Hublot Global CEO Ricardo Guadalupe gifted the star a unique Hublot Big Bang Unico King Gold, jewelry bracelet. The one-of-a-kind timepiece is decked out in diamonds with Khaled’s label name, “We the Best” engraved on the back, complete with impressive detailing of tiny gold keys within the face of the timepiece. Khaled flaunted the dazzling gift to the millions of viewers who follow him on his snapchat, dubbing the watch the “Khaled-Hublot Key Edition.”

To put a fitting end to the evening, the Komodo staff made sure to leave Khaled with one last final key to success–specifically, in the form of a birthday cake. The entire dinner erupted in song to sing Khaled “Happy Birthday” as a giant key-shaped birthday cake was delivered out to him, putting sweet end to the evening, to which, Khaled said, “I like that,” as he enjoyed his dessert and then departed with his group to finish off the night with a celebration at LIV.
