Sean Combs, also known as Diddy received the lifetime achievement award from this year’s BET Awards. The honor was celebrated with a powerful performance that featured Mary J. Blige and Jodeci as well as Busta Rhymes (Busta Rhymes), Busta Rhymes (The Lox), Bryson Tiller, Faith Evans and the Maverick City Choir. A home-video montage with Kim Porter, his late girlfriend, was featured in the performance.
Diddy invited some members of his family to celebrate the occasion on Sunday. His oldest, Quincy, was dressed in purple, while Justin, his second eldest wore gray, and King, his third eldest wore all red. Janice Combs, Diddy’s mother, was also on the red carpet with her son, wearing a sparkling green dress. We last saw Diddy and his family at the red carpet in May at the Billboard Music Awards, which he hosted.
Diddy thanked Kanye West in his acceptance speech to the BET Awards. He also told a story about his mom’s three jobs as a child. He also thanked Porter for being the mother to his four children. He said, “I just miss Kim.” Stay connected to God. This is not our responsibility.
He then thanked everyone who has helped him and his fans. He then let go of time limitations and began to rap an inspiring song. He said, “If I have to pay for commercials, send me a bill.” “We’re not here for ourselves. We’re here for our ancestors. It is now. The speech was completed by him announcing that he would donate $1 million to Howard University, and $1 million to Jackson State University.
