Rap superstar SEAN 'PUFFY' COMBS has emerged as the music industry's top player in US celebrity version of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?.
Puffy answered 12 questions correctly to win $125,000 (£83,333) for charity on the show. Up against contestants such as actor CHARLIE SHEEN and supermodel TYRA BANKS, the BAD BOY RECORDS boss won his place in the hot seat with American host REGIS PHILBIN with a fastest finger time of 7.57.
Puffy decided to donate the winnings from the ABC network show, screened last week (12-19NOV00), to DADDY'S HOUSE SOCIAL PROGRAMME - a charity he established offering educational programs to inner- city children. (RGS/WNWCNM)
