He was presented with an award for Outstanding Contribution to Music at the Asian Awards on Friday night and was looking hot showing off his new buzz cut.
The 22 year old, who quit the band right in the middle of their tour to try to live the life of “a normal 22 year old”, made a moving tribute to his former bandmates.
Telling the audience he was “not really a guy of many words” he went on to say;
“I’d also like to take this moment to thank four of the best guys that I ever met whilst being in the band and doing all the amazing things I did.
Some of the things that we did will stay with me for the rest of my life.”
Zayn, who was accompanied by his gorgeous mum to the event, looked happy and relaxed and even stopped for selfies with fans.
Since quitting 1D, Zayn has been on vacation with his fiancee Little Mix star, Perrie Edwards , and has also been seen in the studio with producer Naughty Boy fuelling speculation that he is working on solo material.
