Pop star Rihanna is due to appear at a high-level summit in Senegal tomorrow but a group of thirty different religious associations have declared her persona non grata.
Rihanna is billed to visit Senegal with French president Emmanuel Macron as part of a charity that provides funding for girls’ education. But the group known as ‘No To Freemasonry And Homosexuality’ is protesting her visit claiming that she’s a member of the ‘Illuminati’.
Rihanna will be visiting the West African nation in her role as an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE). The organisation aims to help fund the teaching of millions of children and young people in developing countries.
However, Senegal’s interior minister has been quoted as saying he will ensure the safety of all conference attendees.
