Bad Boy Records founder, Sean “Diddy” Combs has just proven that pettiness is just a way of life irrespective of age and status.
The rapper has the internet buzzing after he threw shade at Nigerian artist Burna Boy after the singer failed to walk home with any award at the just concluded Grammy awards.
Burna had been nominated in the Best Global Music Album category at the Grammy Awards but lost the award to Masa Takumi and now Diddy is rubbing the loss in Burna's face because they won the award together their last time collaborating!!!
Diddy took to his stories to troll the African giant as he took credit for putting the Afro beats star on the Grammy map.
He pointed out the only time he has ever bagged a Grammy was when the American came through for him.
All while scoffing at the notion that Burna thought his latest project, "Love, Damini" would be just as successful.
"I helped you win your first and only Grammy award which I did out of my kindness, and somehow you thought you could win another one without my help??? Oohh okay.... " the 53-year-old smugly wrote.
3 years ago Diddy served as co-executive producer for Burna's 2020 album "Twice as Tall" ... where he helped add hip-hop flavor to his music which helped the Nigerian star warm up to North American audiences.
Together, they not only won the Best Global Music Album the following year but also topped the Billboard US World Albums chart.
Given how Diddy talks about the project, he paints it as a project he worked on out of sheer boredom during the COVID-19 pandemic. Him and Burna didn't even meet in person until after the album was released!!!
This is the second time Burna has lost a coveted award.
5 months ago during the VMA's he lost the Song of The Summer Award where his song, "Last Last" had been nominated.
Burna couldn't hide his bitterness as he took to his TikTok page to mock the award ceremony and their winner selection.
The artist shared a video of an incredibly huge crowd at a parade turning up while jamming to his hit song “Last Last” loudly.
He captioned the video, “When #MTV Says Jack Harlow Had The Song of the Summer [yawn emoji],” he captioned it.
“Wow, so many heartbroken people #LastLast #SongoftheSummer.”
