Rihanna to receive an honourary doctorate from the University of the West Indies

That’s Dr. Robyn Rihanna Fenty, please.

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.
