Love when two Caribbean queens come together to support the people. Rihanna and Nicki Minaj used their platforms to support the protest against the vicious police brutality going on in Nigeria.
“Standing with & praying for the brave young people of Nigeria who are on the frontlines of this senseless violence.Your voice is being heard.”
