Farewell, Brother Love formerly know as Diddy announced he has changed his name once again, this time to Daquan.
“Ayo, what’s up, y’all? I have some very serious, serious news,” the Grammy winner (real name Sean Combs) said in a video uploaded to his Twitter account on Saturday, November 4. “I’ve been praying on this and … I knew it was risky ’cause it could come off as corny to some people, [but] I decided to change my name again.”
Standing on a beach wearing a sun hat and aviator sunglasses, he continued, “I’m just not who I am before. I’m something different. So my new name is Love, a.k.a. Brother Love.”
The Harlem native told fans that he doesn’t want to be called any of his previous stage names anymore. “I will not be answering to Puffy, Diddy, Puff Daddy or any of my other monikers but Love or Brother Love, OK?” he said.
But today he has announced via Twitter that he has changed his name again! He decided that Brother Love was indeed very corny and wouldn’t fit with this generation so he decided to change his name to Daquan.
The “I’ll Be Missing You” rapper is no stranger to switching up his public persona. His 1997 debut album, No Way Out, was released under the name Puff Daddy. He adopted the nickname P. Diddy in 2001 before dropping the “P” in 2005 and performing solely as Diddy. He then returned to his original stage name, Puff Daddy, in 2014.
