P. Diddy has been announced as Howard University’s commencement speaker – and many people are NOT happy about it.
The university authorities announced on Tuesday that the rapper/entrepreneur will address this year’s graduating class in Washington DC … a choice many critics are blasting because Diddy himself dropped out Howard after two years back in 1990.
The critics – many of which are students of the university – are of the opinion that Diddy should not be given the honor of addressing the graduating class since he did not lead by example by finishing his education and getting a degree.
And given the caliber of people who have addressed the graduates during the ceremony – which include Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Colin Powell and Maya Angelou – one can understand why critics are so pissed.
Neither Diddy nor Howard University have commented on the issue.
