Rihanna takes Fenty Beauty to Ghana

Fenty Beauty, the makeup brand founded by Rihanna, made its presence known at Afrochella, a two-day music and art festival in Accra, Ghana. The event celebrated Africa's music, culture, and art, and festival-goers had the opportunity to try out new Fenty products, win prizes, and get their makeup touched up. Fenty Beauty, which was launched in 2017 with the goal of celebrating beauty in all its forms, no matter one's race, ethnicity, or culture, is now available in eight African countries, including Ghana, Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Rihanna, who has a strong connection to Africa, said, "It means a lot to me to be able to bring Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin to eight African countries, and hopefully more in the future."
