When you turn 48 years old and already have the world at your fingertips, there’s really only one thing left to do: change your name… again.
At least, that’s what Sean Combs—now formerly known as Diddy, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy—has done. The music mogul, who turned 48 on Saturday, took a break from his weekend festivities in Mexico to share an important announcement with the world.
“I’ve been praying on this and I’ve decided…I know it’s risky and I know it’s corny to some people…I decided to change my name again,” he said in a video uploaded to social media.
“I’m just not who I am before. I’m something different. So my new name is Love, aka Brother Love. I will not be answering to Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy, or any of my other monikers but Love or Brother Love.”
In a recent interview with CNN, Brother Love explained why he’s had so many name changes over his career.
“I’ve had different name changes because I only just grew up in a neighborhood where everybody had nicknames,” he said.
“My first nickname was Puffy, and then when I was in the music industry it went to Diddy, and then P. Diddy, or was it P. Diddy first? Then Diddy?”
