As testament to the track’s likeability, it has featured in Bollywood and Mollywood films alike. In 2010, Cheb Khaled was given the opportunity to perform ‘Didi’ at the 2010 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony. Just two years later, Khaled’s other big track, ‘C’est La Vie’ reached a record million downloads on European and Canadian iTunes and got to No. 5 on France’s Billboard charts. The album itself sold 1m copies in the first couple of months and went on to sell almost 5m copies across the globe. A true industry veteran, Cheb Khaled started singing at the age of 14.
