RiRi honours Mia at Diamond affair
For the fifth year in a row, Barbadian superstar Rihanna has focused attention on the importance of humanitarian pursuits and social justice endeavours.
And the Grammy Award- winning pop icon did that by organising her annual Diamond Ball, a glittering affair in the heart of Wall Street, New York, last night.
A highlight of the evening was Rihanna’s presentation of the Diamond Ball Awards to Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, and prominent writer and civil rights activist Shaun King, for their efforts to make the world a better place.
She described Mottley as a “fierce champion for women, young people and empowerment through education (and) pioneering revolutionary programmes such as the education sector enhancement [initiative]”.
In a statement before the exclusive event held at the glamorous restaurant, Cipriani’s at 55 Wall Street, she said both Mottley and King had made the award ceremony an evening to remember.
The annual gala event contributes to her Clara Lionel Foundation’s global initiatives in health, education and other areas.
