Sean ‘Puff Daddy’ Combs has been chosen by Howard University to deliver the Commencement Speech this year.
The Hip Hop mogul attended Howard in the late 1980s, where he gained a reputation for throwing parties that attracted thousands of college students. The University President, Wayne Frederick believes that him being a Howard student is what ignited his entrepreneurial spirit.
The school will honor him by giving him an honorary doctorate in the humanities. They will also honor jazz legend Benny Golson, Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi, CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer, and transplant surgeon Clive Callender.
