On Sunday, the BET Awards which celebrates Black in excellence in music, culture, and sports were presented.

The BET Awards show was hosted by Taraji P. Henson as musician Lizzo started the show with an outstanding performance of her latest hit, ‘About Damn Time.’

Sean “Diddy” Combs was given a lifetime achievement award. The veteran and legendary musician was  highly celebrated by a host of his colleagues and former collaborators like Kanye West and Mary J. Blige.
