Robyn Rihanna Fenty may have been foreboding the future when she sang “That Rihanna reign just won’t let up” back in ’09 because almost 10 years later, she is literally a mega mogul in multiple spheres.
The musician, philanthropist, actress, makeup entrepreneur and now soon-to-be doctorate recipient has been recognized by the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus, California.
Riri will be awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters; given to persons “who made substantial contributions to the Caribbean and the wider world.” – what an icon!
Just last year Rihanna was honoured with the prestigious Humanitarian of the Year Award for various humanitarian contributions including building a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer in her home nation of Barbados. Rihanna is also the custodian of a CFDA fashion award, another honorary award from the Parson's School of Design AND an 8 time Grammy award winner, just as a reminder!
There’s just no stopping her and we certainly look forward to her acceptance speech(and outfit) if she attends the ceremony.
