AJ initially revealed his house-buying news earlier this year when he told Vogue, "I bought her a house the other day. [And it felt] like nothing you can ever describe. Better than sex."

Now AJ has explained why it was so important for him to treat his mum after he became one of the most successful British music stars of the last few years.

Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, AJ explained, "Remaining independent means things have got easier for me because when I first started making music, my main goal was to help my family."

AJ added, ‘Obviously I wanted to enjoy the music and achieve artistic success, but I wanted to give my family an opportunity to live a better life."

"I’ve done that now by buying my mum a house. Whatever I do now is a bonus. Signing a record deal would have given me financial comfort, but now I’ve done it my way, it doesn’t really matter."
