Rihanna is not welcome in Senegal for pushing a ‘gay Illumanti’ plot, according to religious groups.
No to Freemasonry and Homosexuality has accused the Barbadian pop star of promoting gay rights.
The association of around 30 Islamic groups have asked the government to cancel the singer’s visit.
Is Rihanna part of the gay Illuminati?
Rihanna is scheduled to attend a conference in Senegal tomorrow with French president, Emmanuel Macron. She is an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education.
‘[She] doesn’t hide it: she’s part of the Illuminati, a branch of Freemasons,’ Cheikh Oumar Diagne, a spokesperson told Jeune Afrique.
The groups are claiming Rihanna is aiming to make future generations ‘faithful followers of Satan’.
Senegal is comparatively tolerant, but religion has a powerful impact on society. Over 90% of the population identifies as Muslim.
Rihanna, on the other hand, is well known for her embrace of LGBTI fans.
Last year, it was revealed she had been secretly giving one fan advice on coming out and being proud of himself.
Raising funds for vulnerable children in 65 countries
The Global Partnership for Education is trying to raise funds for the most vulnerable children in 65 countries. The GPE has an ambition to reach $2 billion a year by 2020 and replicate the successes achieved in global health.
‘We’re hoping that the conference marks the moment that momentum shifts globally on education and education financing,’ Julia Gillard, the chair of the GPE board and Australia’s former prime minister, said before the meeting.
‘Over the last few years, there’s been growing global interest in education, particularly girls’ education, but financing hasn’t as yet followed. We need a step change.’
Senegalese president, Macky Sall, is hosting the conference.
