A wax figure of the radio host, serial entrepreneur, social media star and motivational speaker Khris Fade will take centre stage in the ‘Media Room’ of Dubai’s Madame Tussauds’.
On 28 September, Kris Fade revealed his wax figure at a very special side by side event inside the attraction itself. Accompanied by close friends and family, including his two daughters and his fiancée Brianna, the unveiling was a thrilling one for all involved. Madame Tussauds’ expert sculptors have spent months creating and crafting the figure by hand and Kris Fade himself donated his own clothes for the model to sport, resulting in a seriously uncanny likeness that provoked much excitement amongst the intimate audience.
Madame Tussauds have perfectly recreated Kris Fade’s Virgin Radio studio, with the booth itself flanked by screens streaming Kris Fade-related content and footage of the Golden Visa-receiving star.
This means that not only can guests have their photo taken with Kris Fade, they’ll be able to feel part of his hugely popular, long-running show. In what is quite simply a dream opportunity for Kris Fade fans and aspiring disc jockeys, visitors can step inside his studio, spin the dials and chat away into the radio mics. The highlight of the experience is likely to be the opportunity to hit a special button and be regaled with his famous sayings including, of course, the well-known and always enthusiastically delivered, “Hello Mum! Hello Dad!”
Speaking about the this, Kris Fade, said: “It’s an absolute honour to be immortalised, as they say, by Madame Tussauds. Growing up as a kid I remember going to the London attraction and I was in awe of how real the figures looked. Never did I think that I would now be in a Madame Tussauds attraction where people would come and take a photo with me. I’m truly blessed by this opportunity, and I will remember this for the rest of my life. I am so grateful to be part of this globally renowned brand.”
