Barbadian superstar, Robyn Rihanna Fenty aka, Rihanna, is officially a billionaire and the richest female musician on the planet.
The singer and business mogul launched Fenty Beauty in 2017 and it has cemented her position among the wealthiest in the world.
According to Forbes, Rihanna is now worth a staggering $1.7 billion (N698bn). Rihanna comes just second to Oprah Winfrey as the richest female entertainer.
It’s not Riri’s music that has resulted in her amassed fortune, the bulk of her billions come from Fenty Beauty.
According to the publication, Rihanna owns 50% of the highly-successful brand. The other half is owned by French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH - run by Bernard Arnault, the world’s second richest person.
Another chunk of her fortune comes from her lingerie brand Savage x Fenty, worth an estimated $270 million (N110bn), and of course the earnings from her successful music and film career.
The news of her achieving this milestone has elicited many reactions from social media users. While many were extremely happy for her, others understood that we’ll likely never see new music from her again.
"CONFIRMED! There won’t be a new album."
"She the definition of SELF MADE."
"This is why it’s best to have a product you can sell instead of your time. Rihanna isn’t doing any shows anytime soon I bet. It’s a beautiful thing."
"I love her make up brand, and she really deserves it ! Love her."
