Zayn Malik Bio

Zayn Javadd Malik was born in West Lane, Baildon, Bradford, England to father Yaser Malik and English mother Patricia. He has one older sister, Doniya, and two younger sisters, Waliyha and Safaa.

Zayn grew up in East Bowling, located south of the Bradford city centre, and he was a student at Lower Fields Primary School in East Bowling. He later went to Tong High School, a state comprehensive school.

He’s the second oldest member of One Direction and auditioned for The X Factor in Manchester when he was 17 years old. Zayn’s audition song was ‘Let Me Love You’ by Mario and all three judges gave him a ‘yes’ after his performance. At boot camp, Zayn’s nerves started to show, especially when it came to dancing. He still made it through and was chosen by the judges to become part of One Direction.
