Hello Dr. Sean “Diddy” Combs.

Today Saturday 10th May 2014, the American rapper and business mogul was awarded a honorary doctorate at his former school Howard University in Washington D.C., USA.

Diddy also gave the commencement speech at the graduation. He said “Howard University didn’t just save my life, it entered my soul…my heart, my being and my spirit.”

Last month, students at the university protested that he was selected to speak having drop out of the institution.

    He spent most part of the speech talking about himself, biggie etc . He didnt have the desency to praise the students that worked hard to earn their degrees. Such a Narcissist.

    Class of 2014!!! I was one of the graduates. I know a lot of people who were against Diddy being our commencement speaker, but they should realize that Howard University was the place that he had his ONLY college experience; therefore he’s still a son of Howard. Nonetheless, I got my B.Sc in Psychology. Moving forward!

    HHHHH-UUUUUU!! YOU KNOW!!

    HU! You know! (too razz)
    Actually for some history, HU flirted with the same idea about 13 years ago (2000 or 2001) but the resounding protests probably made the administration hold off. It was a controversy back then. Congrats to him o.
