To begin with, Zayn Malik grew up in East Bowling, Bradford. Malik was raised in a Muslim household as his father is British-Pakistani, and his mother converted to Islam prior their marriage. He studied at Lower Fields Primary School, and later, at Tong High School. He was interested in performing arts and was seen in various productions at school. In 2010, Zayn auditioned for the reality competition show “The X Factor” (2010) as a solo act, and passed the first round although later was eliminated from the show. However, judges Simon Cowel and Nicole Scherzinger gave him a second chance to continue participation in the form of a boy band together with Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Harry Styles. Zayn accepted the offer which later became a financially profitable career. The band was named One Direction and managed to reach the finals of the show, and ended up in third place. Afterwards, the band signed to Syco Records, and since then they have released 4 studio albums, two EPs, 14 singles, a video album and 14 music videos. All four studio albums, “Up All Night” (2011), “Take Me Home” (2012), “Midnight Memories” (2013) and “Four” (2014), topped the music charts not only in UK, but in many countries all over the world. More, all the albums were certified multi-platinum in the UK, USA and other countries.
