Diddy has announced that he will not be hosting his annual New Year's Eve Party this year. The mogul, known for holding elaborate parties, has also given back to Miami residents in need, who were burdened by the pandemic. 

If there's one thing you can count on for sure, is that a party hosted by Diddy will be star-studded and memorable. However, this year, the 51-year-old is playing it safe in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Taking to his Instagram on Monday, Diddy announced that he will not be hosting his annual end of year event, as he wants to ensure the safety of his family and friends.

No stranger to the idea of going above and beyond for celebrations, Diddy recently gifted his mother, Janice with a shiny new black Bentley and a $1million cheque for her 80th birthday on December 21.  

Through his Sean Combs Foundation, the "Come With Me" rapper pledged to pay the rent of 175 families.

Through a series of videos of photo's, the Grammy winner sang high praises of the woman he credits for making him the man he is today, after his father, Melvin, who passed away when Diddy was just a toddler.

"Time is flying and I’m enjoying every second of it. I thank God for blessing me with such humble, kind, sweet, amazing girls."

The day of spoiling the 3 special women in his life culminated in a formal dinner for the entire family, adorned with flowers, candles and exquisite utensils.
