How Diddy Once Helped Employee Dia Simms' Sick Dad Move to Better Hospital
Rap legend, Sean "Diddy" Combs is widely renowned for his musical exploits and wealth. The rapper is hugely compassionate and looks after the welfare of his employees as revealed by Dia Simms.
Diddy is a world-renowned rap artist who has successfully built an empire with his music. Despite being famous and wealthy, the rap artist has remained caring towards his staff.
This fact was pointed out by Dia Simms, his employee, who narrated how Diddy helped secure her father's move to a better facility when he (her father) was critically ill.
DIA SIMMS' REVELATION
Dia Simms, who now heads Diddy Combs's Enterprises revealed her boss's compassionate side when she spoke at Color Comm Conference which held in Miami last Friday.
She explained that her father was very ill at the time and collapsed at one point. He was quickly rushed to a hospital in Brooklyn; however, the conditions in the hospital were terrible. Diddy came to Dia's rescue and made a call through to the hospital to have her father moved to the best facility.
During the call, the businessman explained that Dia's father is his Godfather, and instructed that he should get a private room, with fantastic treatment.

AT&T asked me “Who from black history is an inspiration..” I told them James Baldwin has always been an inspiration to me. He was fearless, poised and unapologetic as he articulated the plight of Black people in America. He spoke with power, pride and a confidence that should be inspiring to all Black people. He embodied Black Excellence. #DreamInBlack @att
Dia further explained that she never told Diddy of her father being in the hospital and that he must have found out from someone else. Who? She has no idea to date.
She stressed on the importance of professional relationships in forming strong bonds between people. Dia believes that work should be much more than one's work relationship. It should rather be an "ally-ship," where colleagues have each other's back for many years, as it is so much more than what humans should do daily, but a kind of advocacy that lasts forever.
