Rihanna Teams With Ofo Bike-sharing to Bring Bikes, Scholarships to Foundation

In 2017, Rihanna, a global ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education, visited Malawi where only eight percent of the 4.6 million students in primary school go on to a secondary one.

Set up through her Clara Lionel Foundation, the eight-time Grammy winner-led “1 KM Action” will help fund CLF’s Global Scholarship Program and support dynamic educational programs in Malawi. In addition, some students have already received bikes to help young girls get to school safely, “cutting down those very long walks they make to and from school all alone,” Rihanna said. Some teachers have also been given bicycles to get to class on time.

After graduating from college and before starting Ofo and becoming its chief executive officer, Dai Wei volunteered for a year as a teacher in one of China’s more impoverished regions. “We believe in unlocking every corner in the world with equal access to education as well as with our bike-sharing scheme,” he said.

The pairing with the Clara Lionel Foundation comes at a time when the station-free Ofo is in the process of trying to raise $1 billion. Last month Alibaba helped the three-year-old bike-sharing start-up raise $700 million. The 29-year-old Barbadian does not have a deal with Ofo though, according to a spokeswoman for CLF, which was started in 2012 and named for the “Kiss It Better” singer’s grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.

Ofo is also helping CLF to offer scholarships to students from China, Brazil, Barbados, Cuba, Haiti, Grenada, Guyana and Jamaica who are accepted to colleges or universities in the U.S. The company is particularly interested in students focused on the environment and sustainability.

From China’s Mobike venturing into London to ArrivaBike delving into Slovakia, bike-sharing has been grabbing all sorts of headlines. In New York, Citibike had record-breaking usage one day last week when nearly 70,300 trips were taken. While Alexander Wang has added cyclingwear to the second season of his Adidas collaboration and Lorenzo Martone is launching his own cycling-friendly line this fall (to accentuate his high-end bikes and collapsible helmets), Rihanna was onto the trend as a fashion statement long ago. Steven Klein shot the musician standing with a bicycle for Italian Vogue in 2009.

Kungfu Kenny just released his latest visuals for the song Loyalty off his Damn album that features Rihanna. 

Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna make a seriously dynamic duo in the new music video for Lamar’s “LOYALTY.” Together, they fend off literal street sharks, muscular hitmen and the occasional murder attempt. 

Helmed by “HUMBLE.” director Dave Meyers & the little homies, the video conjures the feeling of a film noir. Gyrating women, street fights and dangerous anti-gravity chambers abound in the high-action clip. In one particularly arresting scene, Lamar dangles Rihanna over the edge of a city high rise, lights glowing around them as they continue to lock eyes and spit verses.

“LOYALTY.” is the fourth single off Lamar’s latest album DAMN. He teased the artistically symbolic “HUMBLE.” in March, prior to the album’s release in April, and recently dropped videos for “DNA.” – starring Don Cheadle – and a teaser clip for “ELEMENT.”

Peep the visuals below

“Shout out to my boy @asahdkhaled for having me on the album man! #WILDTHOUGHTS video and vocals tomorrow at 6AM EST,” Riri wrote in the caption along with the cover art, which, of course, features Khaled’s seven-month-old bundle of joy on a tiny throne amidst flowers with a lion cub.

The song samples Santana and the Product G&B’s 1999 hit “Maria, Maria” and also carries writing credits from Partynextdoor, who is also on the album for the track “Down For Life” co-starring Future, Rick Ross, Travis Scott and Kodak Black. Pictures from the video shoot in Miami also made the rounds online.

Rih Rih fans have to be excited with this as Rihanna has just registered two new songs on ASCAP. Is R9 on the way? Let’s speculate, shall we?


Things have also gotten a little more interesting when we dig into the meat of the singles and found out that Mark Anthony Myrie, Buju Banton government name, is credited as a writer on one of the songs titled “Phatty.” The second single that Rihanna registered on ASCAP is titled “Only One Who Knows.” The release date for the singles is not yet known, but we are keeping her eyes on this new song “Phatty.”

Well These are two great artists and you can only expect great music from artists of this quality.” Rihanna has always been a huge fan of reggae music especially artists like Bob Marley, Buju Banton, and Sizzla Kalonji. Rihanna was also spotted earlier this week wearing a T-Shirt with Buju Banton image on it paying homage to the reggae singer.

Buju is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence in Florida for cocaine trafficking conviction. He is scheduled to be released from prison in late 2018 when he will be deported to Jamaica. The Grammy-winning reggae star has maintained his innocence, but after exhausting his appeals, he opted to complete his sentence. Releasing a song with Rihanna will sure give his career some lifeline ahead of his release from prison.

Buju Banton is also restricted from recording new music in prison.

And finally it’s here

A Tweet Come True! Rihanna & Lupita Nyong’o Film REALLY In The Works! 

A Tweet Come True! Rihanna & Lupita Nyong'o Film REALLY In The Works!
A Tweet Come True! Rihanna & Lupita Nyong’o Film REALLY In The Works!
Now who remembers in April when social-media user tweeted a picture of Rihanna and Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o sitting side-by-side at a 2014 Miu Miu fashion show and commented how the duo looked like a Hollywood action movie waiting to happen.

Well It’s official! You can expect a movie coming soon

Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o are officially going to turn an idea into reality.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Netflix is producing a brand new film based on a fictional scenerio created on Twitter. Ava DuVernay has joined to direct the film with Insecure’s Issa Rae in talks to write the script.

It all began when RiRi and Nyong’o took a photo together at Paris Fashion Week. A Twitter user said “Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the [scams].”

 A simple tweet came true!

We have yet to get details on the film, but it is set to start production in 2018.

It’s not the first time we have seen a Twitter story turn to a possible production as we all remember Zola’s crazy story over a year ago that set the internet on fire.
I’m excited, how about you?

According to Vanity Fair, “Rae’s team confirmed to Vanity Fair that the project is in the works, adding that the original Twitter users who imagined the concept for this film will be credited and included in some form.

social-media user tweeted a picture of Rihanna and Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o sitting side-by-side at a 2014 Miu Miu fashion show and commented how the duo looked like a Hollywood action movie waiting to happen.

The photo, taken during Paris Fashion Week three years ago, shows RiRi in a cool, pimped-out multi-colored coat, red lips, black shades and stylish bangs as Lupita keeps it classy and chic with thick frames, bejeweled collar, dangly earrings and modest top. Because of the two contrasting outfits, this particular fan assigned the “Love on the Brain” singer the con artist role while the Black Panther actress plays her intellectual counterpart who devises a crafty plan.

The tweet went viral, causing Lupita to tag Rihanna and suggest, “I’m down if you are.” 

A few days later, on Sunday, the singer replied back saying, “I’m in Pit’z.”

With the characters already set, the Internet worked to fill in the writer and director role for this dream-team film — suggesting Insecure mastermind Issa Rae and Selma director Ava DuVernay respectively. 

Codeblack Films, from Lionsgate, wanted in on the project as well and tweeted their deep interest in the totally made-up film.

With all of this Twitter planning, who knows… maybe we might just get a movie out of it. 

Fingers crossed

R&B music’s sexiest stars stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.

While Kehlani and NAO were billed for the festival, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.

During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.

Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.

The Weeknd, who came out to perform with XO producer-turned-artist NAV, spent some quality time with girlfriend Selena Gomez backstage. Singers like Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Christina Milian, Justine Skye and more all were in attendance as well to take in the performances and mingle during the events.

Buzzing teen singer-songwriter Khalid caught up with Solange and Kehlani, who also spent some time with Sevyn and SZA on Day 2. Jhené Aiko and her sister Mila J were also hanging around. Jhené posted a photo on Instagram that said her body was in Coachella but her heart is at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, which is coming up on Memorial Day Weekend.

See all their festive fun below.

We jus out here blooming 🌻 @kehlani
