Nigerian Kid Dancers ‘Brought Pure Joy To My Spirit’ – Rihanna

Rihanna, singer, songwriter and actor, has showered applause on a Nigerian kid dancing group. The 9-kid group was seen in a photo on Rihanna’s page holding up a cardboard with inscription: Thank You Rihanna. We Love You”. The display of affection was not lost on the Barbadian singer. She said: “awww my Lil squad…..I love YOU guys! I speak on behalf of the entire social media when I say this… you really brought a pure joy to our spirits just by seeing how happy you are when you dance! You personally made my day! Keep up the great work kids! ❤️”

Rihanna, who has 60.9 million followers on Instagram, was days ago declared the first female artist to cross two billion worldwide streams on Apple Music.

As an early starter herself – singing at age 7 years – Rihanna expectedly understands the kids’ fervor for the art.

More so, Rihanna has shown a soft spot for kids and Africa through her ambitious education programme, which seeks to educate vulnerable children in 65 countries.

The singer was pictured in 2017 teaching in a Malawian school and was, in February 2018, in Senegal, alongside African leaders and French President Emmanuel Macron.

“We have a long way to go and this is a fight that we will never stop fighting until every boy and every girl has access to education,” said Rihanna at the Dakar-Senegal event.

Reputed to have a deep wallet worth $245 million, the 30-year-old multiple awards singer is one of the best-selling music artiste of all time.
Popularly called Riri, the Good Girl Gone Bad, singer won her first Grammy Awards in 2008.
