The World of Nickelodeon & Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards

This September, families can experience the real world of Nickelodeon and party with superstar Jason Derulo at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards!

Taking place at ADNEC on 20 September, the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards will be the biggest, slimiest party of the year for kids in the region. It will be hosted by musical superstar Jason Derulo, who will also perform, alongside co-host Haifa Beseisso – better known as popular YouTuber Fly With Haifa.

With 15 billion streams worldwide and 17 multi-platinum singles, US singer and songwriter Derulo is a global superstar famed for chart-topping hits including Swalla, Stupid Love, Want to Want Me and his latest track Mamacita featuring Farruko. “I’m honoured to be hosting the first Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in Abu Dhabi!” said Derulo. “We’ve got a thrilling show planned, and I can’t wait to be on stage celebrating with the kids. It’s going to be a great event, see you there!”

YouTube star and co-host Beseisso, who uses her channel Fly With Haifa to show her travels around the world and break cultural stereotypes, said, “Super excited to be on that stage, share some serious love, colour, slime and just have a fantastic time at the first Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in the Middle East! We’re going to have fun, Arab Style.”
