Diddy attended Howard University in Washington before dropping out after two years to pursue music. The university however deemed it fit to recognise his efforts and honored him with an honorary doctorate degree.
In his commencement speech, Diddy who has topped the Forbe’s list of hip hop’s wealthiest for a number of times, recognised Kenayn runners.
“I was feeling I was going to win the race… To the left of me, to the right of me were my Kenyan brothers and sisters, I even told them, I’ll see you at the finish line…” he said. “But then I hit a quarter mile and all I could see was my brothers and sisters way, way, way, way in a distance…”
He earned the title Dr. Combs after being awarded the degree.
