Who Is Rihanna?

Named Robyn Rihanna Fenty, she is a singer, actress, businesswoman, and designer who was born on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados. She was brought up alongside two brothers and three half-siblings from her father’s side of the family. All her half-siblings were born to her father, Roland Fenty from different women in previous relationships.

Her mother, Monica who had a rather strained relationship with her father, later divorced from him because of his alcoholism and cocaine addiction as well as the abuse she suffered from him. The end of the marriage of her parents when she was 14 somehow helped Rihanna’s health who had been suffering from excruciating headaches that at a point doctors began suspecting she might have a tumor.

As regards Rihanna’s education, the music star went to Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School and from there, she proceeded to Combermere High School. She would, however, later forget about education to pursue her musical career. At first, she started a musical group with a couple of her friends from high school. By 2003, she was set to begin her career after she was discovered by music mogul Evan Rogers during an audition. She got her first record deal leading to the release of her first song, “Pon de Replay.” The rest, as the cliche goes, is history.
