A Blackburn jeweller welcomed social media superstar Abdu Rozik to the company headquarters.

Abdu Rozik who has 8.3 million followers on Instagram, and is frequently pictured with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Tyson Fury, made a surprise visit to the Pugata Boutique in Batley, West Yorkshire.

Hailing from Tajikistan, the diminutive celebrity, who etched his name in the record books as the world's smallest singer, was given a guided tour of the Pugata boutique and showroom, and got an opportunity to view a collection of diamonds by owner, Zak Patel. 

Zak previously operated a newsagent in Preston New Road and then Blakey Moor, before making a name for himself as a designer of bespoke wedding and engagement rings.

Mr Patel said he was delighted the entertainer, who recently opened the Habibi restaurant in Leeds, took out the time to visit him. 

He said: “He was very talkative, a nice guy, really genuine, just like an everyday person. 

"He was happy to speak to family members and pose for pictures. 

"He was very impressed with our collection of jewellery and was very impressed with the diamonds in particular.”

Zak added: “For Abdu Rozik to insist Pugata is the UK’s most Instagrammable jewellery brand in the UK, it was a very nice compliment as we take a great deal of pride in our Instagram page in particular.” 

“Abdu said he will be letting his celebrity friends know all about Pugata and our current collection.

"We regularly host celebrities and social media influencers, and we have received many enquiries from the Middle East since.”

Pugata has previously hosted British fashion icon Dame Zandra Rhodes, known for her illustrious client list, from the late Princess Diana, Freddie Mercury, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Kylie Minogue. 

Dame Zandra flew in from Shanghai to meet Zak and his team at the company head-quarters in Batley, before she was taken to Kirklees College, where she delivered a question and answer session. 

The company has also been featured in Vogue and has worked with designers such as Bobby Abley and Bora Aksu, who specifically selected a number of product’s from the Pugata collection for models to wear at the London Fashion Show.   

Zak also provided jewellery worn by model and influencer, Faryal Makdoom to wear for a number of photo shoots.
