P. Diddy to be honoured with Industry icon award at pre-grammys gala

The recording academy has announced that American rapper and businessman, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs will receive an industry icon award at this year’s Grammys.

The three-time Grammy Award winner will receive the honour at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammys gala.

The event will be held on 25 January 2020, a night before the 62nd Grammy Awards is set to hold on 26 January.

According to Clive Davis, Diddy will be honoured for “his past innovative and creative contributions right from the very inception of the hip hop revolution”.

“Clive Davis and Arista Records gave me a chance when I was starting Bad Boy Records, he was one of the first industry executives to really believe in me. I’m forever grateful for him,” Diddy said in the statement. “To be honored at this year’s Pre-GRAMMY Gala and receive the Industry Icons Award is truly a blessing.” 

Other recipients of the Industry icon award are Sir Richard Branson, Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter, Clive Davis, Ahmet Ertegun, David Geffen, Berry Gordy, Lucian Grainge, Debra L. Lee, Doug Morris, Mo Ostin, and Antonio “L.A.” Reid, among others.
