Most folks remember Lil’ JJ as the adorable, baby-face 13-year-old comedian from BET’s comedy talent search program “Comin’ to the Stage.”
Lil’ JJ, born James Lewis, Jr., has since blossomed as a comedian in his career after receiving his own Nickelodeon series “Just Jordan” following his win from the BET contest.
The actor, now 22, now stars as ‘Brandon’ in the TV One series “The Rickey Smiley Show.”
But another interesting tidbit about the comedian, who hails from Little Rock, AR, is his affiliation to a prominent historically African American fraternity.
A photo surfaced online showing Lil’ JJ as a newly inducted “made” member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. at Arkansas Baptist College.
Lil’ JJ sticks out his tongue and throws up the fraternity’s signature hook with a sorority member of Delta Sigma Theta.
The Delta @2manytaylors posted the photo to her Instagram account with a caption that read, “Congrats to my Frat ‘Lil JJ’ the newest member of Omega Psi Phi.’
Omega Psi Fraternity, Inc. is the first black fraternity found at a historically black college university. Founded on Nov. 17, 1911, the fraternity is dedicated to its Cardinal Principles of manhood, scholarship, perseverance and uplift. The fraternity’s members include civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson, comedian and philanthropist Bill Cosby and radio host Steve Harvey, to name a few.
