He has many titles from rapper to music mogul to fashion designer - and now doctor.
Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, was awarded an honorary doctorate on Saturday from Howard University in Washington D.C. - a school he attended for two years before dropping out to pursue music.

During his inspiring commencement speech, the 44-year-old told the students in attendance they were magical creatures capable of shaping the future.

I am a unicorn,' he exclaimed according to InTheCapital.com. 'You are a unicorn. We are unicorns.'
The magical reference was part of his overall message: that students remake the world with their power of their dreams.
The rapper, also known as Puff Daddy, studied business at the university for two years before dropping out in 1990 to further his career in music.
Throughout the momentous day, Diddy posted numerous shots to Instagram and Twitter as he wore a tasselled graduation cap and gown.'I am a unicorn!'

Afterwards, Diddy tweeted, 'I am Humbled & Honored!!!'

According to Billboard, he told the crowd: 'Howard University didn't just change my life - it entered my soul, my heart, my being and my spirit.'

The Bad Boy Records founder, who has changed his nickname back from P Diddy, was recognised alongside CNN news anchor Wolf Blitzer, surgeon Clive Callender, jazz saxophonist Benny Golson and PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi at the ceremony.

Diddy has been named hip-hop's wealthiest man by Forbes magazine with a worth of $700m.



His fortune was earned through multiple businesses, including music, the Sean John clothing line, his Ciroc brand vodka and a new cable channel called Revolt TV.

The Grammy-winning artist, who used to date Jennifer Lopez, has confused fans over the years with his name changes and recently announced he has returned to the name that made him famous: Puff Daddy.

He ditched Puff Daddy for the simple moniker P.Diddy in 2001 before changing to just Diddy.

But recently, he claimed that he never changed his name, and was always in fact, Puff Daddy.
