Music producer Naughty Boy was honoured at the Asian Achievers Awards.

The former Watford pizza boy turned chart-topping songwriter and music producer received the Editor’s Award for Rising Star at a glitzy ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Friday.

Rt Hon Phillip Hammond MP, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, said in his speech: "There is much to celebrate in the contribution of British Asians made to our national life - be it in sports, in culture, in academia and in community life. 

"But perhaps most strikingly and most dramatically in business, and the professions where the British Asian community punches well above its weight and produces some outstanding successes.

"The Prime Minister has asked me specifically to add his congratulations to all of you."
