Kanye West Stuns the Audience at the Bet Awards 2022 With a Surprise Appearance to Honor His Friend Sean ‘diddy’ Combs!
Sunday, at the BET Awards 2022, the 45-year-old musician made a rare public appearance to deliver the Lifetime Achievement Award to his pal Sean “Diddy” Combs alongside Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.
“How do we enthrone our monarchs? How do we respect our monarchs?” West, whose face was entirely concealed by a hat, sunglasses, and a black mask, stated onstage.
“I still seek his counsel to this day. He influences so many of my decisions and so many of my life decisions. West continued, referring to his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, before adding with a chuckle, “Thanks for that, Puff.”
“You know, I took a little hiatus. I said, I just want to declare myself legally dead for a year. I just want to be off the grid and Puff is pretty persistent, but I had to think, bro, it’s like, people get amnesia. Like I should never have Puff have to ever call more than one time. Any of us in this room if Puff ever needs us, we need to jump and be there. This man has been through [and] survived a lot of stuff and broke down a lot of doors so we can be standing … he broke down so many doors of classism, taste, swag. Puff, if I never told you I love you, you’re my brother,” said West.
“We had Father’s Day at the house,” Kim said on Today. “The kids spent the day with him and then we had a big Father’s Day dinner and North cooked.”
“Everything is going well,” Kim said. The couple had been married for seven years when Kim filed for divorce from West in February 2021.
Before Diddy gave his speech about his achievement award, Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Shyne, The Lox, Lil Kim, Busta Rhymes, and Bryson Tiller all performed with him.
After playing a voice note from his late ex-girlfriend Kim Porter, who died unexpectedly of lobar pneumonia in 2018, Diddy sang “I’ll Be Missing You” with Faith Evans and Maverick City Choir.
During his acceptance speech, Diddy said, “Before I leave, I want to give a million dollars to Howard University, and I’m also going to give another million dollars to Deon Sanders and Jackson State because we should play for ourselves.” “From the bottom of my heart, thank you all.”
In the early 1990s, Diddy started the record label Bad Boy. Since then, it has become a hip-hop powerhouse, selling more than 100 million records all over the world.
The three-time Grammy winner also has a successful fashion line and, in 2013, he started REVOLT Media & TV, which is the first Black-owned multi-platform cable music network.
“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,” BET CEO Scott Mills said in a 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.”
After the show, Diddy will throw a party with Ciroc Premium Vodka and Deleon Tequila, which will be powered by META.
From Los Angeles, the BET Awards, which honor musicians, actors, and athletes, are being shown live.
