On the heels of his re-emergence at a major music event in the United States last Sunday, Belize’s Opposition Leader, former international rapper, Shyne, has expressed immense gratitude to Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. “You’ve taught us to be fearless, you’ve taught us to triumph over tragedy, you’ve taught us to never give up,” he said.

Diddy was honored with the Lifetime Achievement award at the BET awards on Sunday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. He took the opportunity to honor labels of his past and present, drawing on artistes like Lil Kim, Mary J Blige, Jodeci, Faith Evans and Shyne.

In the set that featured the Belizean native, the audience got quite a shock when Shyne took the stage, delivering a modern twist of his debut single, “Bad Boyz,” while highlighting the political figure he has become. On Tuesday, Shyne took to social media, offering words of gratitude to the ‘Bad Boy’ label creator. “It was a distinct honor to celebrate your historic night with a performance tribute! Thank you for all you have given to so many of us in so many ways,” he wrote.

Forty-three- year- old (43) Shyne, whose real name is Moses Michael Levi Barrow, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in the US, having been convicted on two counts of assault, reckless endangerment and gun possession for the December 27, 1999, shooting at Club New York. He had admitted to firing a gun at the nightclub, but maintained that he was acting in self-defense and that another gunman’s bullets injured the two victims. Diddy who, prior to that, had signed Shyne to his Bad Boy Entertainment label — was acquitted on all charges in the same trial. In 2009, Shyne was deported to Belize where he went on to become an elected member of Belize’s parliament, and leader of the Opposition.
