Popular American superstar, singer and brand influencer Rihanna has revealed she is originally from an Igbo woman.

The Barbadian singer, actress, fashion designer, was recently pronounced a billionaire and officially one of the wealthiest female musicians in the world.

The star’s net worth is estimated at $1.7 billion while still receiving almost $1.4 billion from her beauty cosmetics line.

Rihanna’s other fortune comes from her lingerie company, which is worth another $270 million while not forgetting her branded earrings.

The billionaire star in a recent interview stated her mother disclosed her real origin to her as she noted she is primarily an Igbo woman.

She said: “My mom told me that I am originally an Igbo woman. Igbo is a tribe in Africa.”

RiRi , I am Amadi, the son of Maazi Okafor your Igbo brother. Our village is deep in the Hinterlands. The villagers miss you dearly, your uncle's and aunties can't wait to see you... Maazi Okonkwo the Palm wine tapper has offered to give two big pot of fresh palm wine if you visit us this Xmas...RiRi, you'll def like it.

I know one-day you'll make a U-turn and search for your true roots.
I have been praying for the day, when you come to my village in Nsukka, I'd then take your hands, and we go to the market and I buy hot Okpa for you... In the evening, We'd eat AKPU and ofe ONUGBU together... Riri, I want to hold your hands and look deep into eyes and say, "Nwanyi oma" take me to "America when next you're going back"...Any DON JAZZY that comes close to you would be arrested by Abba KYARI'

Since nobody has said lemme Shout it Igbo Amaka

Igbos are like the sand, they are simply uncountable. Some idiots has the guts to call them a "dot" in a circle, unfortunately they so called main circle won't stop running round their own circle. Killing and maiming all in the name of religion.

née is the female past participle of the French word naître meaning "to be born*. English has borrowed the word from French with the meaning "born with the name".

Braithwaite Meaning
Northern English: habitational name from any of the places in Cumbria and Yorkshire named Braithwaite, from Old Norse breiðr ‘broad’ + þveit ‘clearing’.

Why are most people here so pained, someone here showed an evidence that majority of the people in Barbados today are Igbos, I went to Wikipedia to confirm it myself and it's true, we are all humans with different gifts, the gifts comes no matter our tribe or race, any tribe can produce a genius, maybe Lil wayne is a Yoruba man, who knows.

Rihanna's mother probably knew her history that was why she told Rihanna that she is Igbo.
Any tribe can produce a talented person, we just use tribe and religion to divide ourselves, we are all the same, you know how I know ? We all look alike and think alike, If an Igbo man tells you that his name is Ademola, you would think that he is a Yoruba man, we are all humans and that's all. That's the truth.
Here is the proof, scroll down and click on dispersal
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igbo_people_in_the_Atlantic_slave_trade

According to Wikipedia, the people from Barbados are mostly of Igbo decendant, deniaing it won't change their history, the truth will always remain the truth, wether you like it or not.
