Former President Donald Trump has awarded rapper Waka Flocka Flame with a lifetime achievement award for his charity work.
The former president, apparently impressed with the rapper’s philanthropic endeavors as a volunteer for the Chicago nonprofit group Daughter of Destiny, sent him an official certificate and medal in Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday, according to TMZ.
Waka Flocka Flame, who was born Juaquin James Malphurs, can be seen on video smiling from ear to ear and thanking the former president as he received the award.
“I want to thank President Trump for recognizing me,” the rapper said after a medal was placed around his neck by his mentor, Apostle Dr. Bridget Outlaw.
The 34-year-old “No Hands” rapper also posted about the award on social media.
“Lifetime Achievement Award,” he wrote. “I gotta thank my pastor/big sister. Apostle Dr. Bridget C. Outlaw for teaching and guiding me on this journey God got us on I’m just honored 🙏🏾 S/O to my president!!!”
Daughter of Destiny is an outreach program that, according to its website, “was founded with the mission to provide supportive service to homeless women who’s lives have been impacted by substance abuse, trauma, domestic violence, and/or mental illness.”
TMZ reported that Trump signed the certificate and had the award approved before leaving office in January.
Last year, Waka Flocka Flame received an honorary doctorate degree in philanthropy and humanitarianism.
