Diddy Being Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award At This Year’s BET Awards

The Diddy train has taken off and is running full steam!

BET recently announced that Bad Boy mogul and entertainment stalwart Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is being honored with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s BET Awards. This year’s awards show is being hosted by Academy Award®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning actor, writer, director, producer, and philanthropist Taraji P. Henson. The BET Awards 2022 is scheduled to air live on Sunday, June 26 on BET at 8 pm ET/ PT from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

“Diddy has always been a pioneering force in our community, breaking barriers, achieving unprecedented heights, blazing new trails, and, in so doing, raising the bar for all of us,” said BET CEO Scott Mills in a written statement. “His virtuosity is matched only by his range – from music to media, culture, business, and philanthropy – Diddy has exemplified Black Excellence. We are delighted to have this opportunity to use our biggest stage to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of our friend Diddy.”

“Puff’s contributions to culture transcend Hip hop. Growing up in DC, I watched his rise at Howard University as he repped Black excellence from day one. It’s an honor to celebrate him now, while he is still on his incredible journey,” said Jesse Collins, BET Awards Executive Producer and Founder & CEO, Jesse Collins Entertainment.

The re-emergence of Diddy has taken off with the recent announcement of his latest label, Love Records. In this newest collaboration, Combs has signed a one-time album deal with the legendary imprint Motown Records, Billboard reported.

Last month, exactly 25 years after taking home his first Billboard Music Award in 1997, he returned to the stage to host the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. He also executive produced the show.

The music producer and executive has worked with artists such as Mary J. Blige, The Notorious B.I.G., Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Boyz II Men, Britney Spears, Kanye West, and many others throughout his illustrious career as a hitmaker.
