PASADENA, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 22: Rihanna accepts the President’s Award onstage during the 51st NAACP Image Awards, Presented by BET, at Pasadena Civic Auditorium on February 22, 2020 in Pasadena, California.

Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley recently showed gratitude to Rihanna for donating 4,000 tablets to Barbadian students.

“I want to thank our own ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty and her Clara Lionel Foundation as well as the Jack Dorsey Start Small Foundation for coming together and donating 4,000 tablets to Barbadian school children,” Mottley said during a press conference.

“We all know that education is the most important gift that we can give any child and to the extent that there is no digital divide among all of our students that is our duty.”

“Of course, our government will continue to make sure that we get there. But to the extent that we can receive assistance from those who care enough who love us enough to be able to help us lift the burden on this long journey,” Mottley continued.

“And we say thank you because we can always do it better when we work together. And Robyn  [Rihanna] and usual, thank you,” Mottley said.

Rihanna recently axed her plans to work on her highly-anticipated ninth album to focus on Fenty Skin, the singer’s new forthcoming skincare extension of Fenty Beauty.

“Skincare, it’s the truth. It either works or it doesn’t. There’s nowhere to hide,” RiRi recently told British Vogue.
