Zayn Malik And Riz Ahmed Just Got Featured In A List Of UK’s Most Influential Asians
That’s right. Our homeboy Riz Ahmed is one of the most influential Asian people in the UK. This young Oscar winner has been kicking ass in Hollywood and making a name for himself by speaking out about culturally sensitive issues in order to shed light on them.
Not only is Riz Ahmed a talented actor, he is a gifted rapper too. As an activist, he has aimed to get more representation of people of color in the house of commons and create political rap music in order to get his message across. So is it really a wonder that people think that he is one of the influential Asians in the UK?
The Power List which is compiled by the Asian Media Group has been topped by the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan for the second time in two years. It is no surprise that the mayor made it to the top of the list after taking a stand against the bullying nature of Donald Trump which earned him big brownie points with his countrymen.
Riz Ahmed has his name etched on the fourth place on the list which is a huge achievement as his name is the only non-politician name on such a high degree in the list. He has been previously featured on the list too, but this time he shot up 40 places up the list to the fourth position.
Another handsome hunk that we are proud to see on the list is former One Direction member Zayn Malik. After making his exit from the super popular boy band, Zayn has embarked on a solo career with hits like Pillowtalk and I don’t wanna live forever, under his belt.
It’s great to see Muslims being represented in such a positive manner on the global scale. From politics to entertainment, Muslims are making a name for themselves and we just hope for a time when the news of a Muslim doing something extraordinary is not reported as a rare occurrence.
