Kanye West made a surprise appearance to present Sean “Diddy” Combs with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 BETs.

The “Donda” rapper delivered his speech on stage with his face completely covered in a hat, shades and black mask.

He said, “How do we crown our kings? How do we appreciate our kings?” 

“I go to him for advice to this day. He inspires so many of my choices, so many of my life choices. My wife choices,” West continued, referencing his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

West was, of course, formerly married to Kim Kardashian.

Combs was in a long relationship with actress and model Kim Porter, who died of pneumonia in 2018 at the age of 47.

Combs paid tribute to Porter in a performance prior to accepting his award and thanked her in his speech.

“Thanks for that, Puff.”

“You know, I took a little hiatus. I said, I just want to declare myself legally dead for a year. I just want to be off the grid, and Puff is pretty persistent, but I had to think, bro, it’s like, people get amnesia. Like I should never have Puff have to ever call more than one time. Any of us in this room, if Puff ever need us, we need to jump and be there. This man has been through [, and] survived a lot of stuff and broke down a lot of doors so we can be standing … he broke down so many doors of classism, taste, swag. Puff, if I never told you I love you, you’re my brother,” said West.

Kanye’s appearance at the 2022 BET Awards show was his first since the Grammy Awards prohibited him from performing at the ceremony back in April due to “concerning online behaviour” despite his five nominations.
