Sean “Diddy” Combs sure knows how to pick em! No joke…he really does! Diddy has just selected my favorite pecan tan man, Nelly, as the new spokesmodel for Sean John. Ashanti….I admire you.
“I have known Nelly for many years and I really admire his work. To me, Nelly is the quintessential definition of the Sean John man. He has the attitude, the swagger, and most of all the physique that our customers can both aspire and relate to. And let’s be honest, all of the ladies out there are going to be thanking us for this campaign. The images are so strong; they speak for themselves. We are truly excited to welcome Nelly into the Sean John family.” (Source)
