Diddy doesn’t come from a silver spoon and his most recent Instagram post shares what inspired the record executive-entrepreneur to be where he is in life today.
Tuesday (July 6), Brother Love posted on IG a post of himself devouring a mango by his infinity pool. In the caption, however, Diddy recounts a brief anecdote about the difficulties he faced in his youth.
“One day when I was growing up, I woke up and had 15 cockroaches on my face,” he wrote. “At that point I said no, I refuse to live like this. Work hard, believe in your crazy dreams… AND NEVER SETTLE DOWN!”
In the current clip, the mango-inspired Puffy says, “You can do it. You can be whoever you want. You could eat mango too, with the ocean as your backyard. I’m not special. I just want it, I want it badly. You feel me? And I won’t allow myself not to have a mango. That’s why I’m struggling. You know what I’m saying?
Diddy close the short clip by jumping into her luxurious swimming pool.
While Puff has done pretty well creating Bad Boy Records, owning Ciroc Vodka, starting his own TV network and more, people laugh and seem to doubt that Diddy actually woke up with 15 cockroaches on his face when he was a kid.
One person tweeted: “Diddy lied … I had cockroaches and they never sit on your face, cockroaches have places to go and shit to do.”
Another said: “When Diddy mom finds out he’s lying on the internet.”
