Influencer Mihlali Ndamase recently attended a Fenty Beauty event where she rubbed shoulders with several A-listers. The award-winning singer and billionaire Rihanna hosted the event.

The Barbados-born singer was launching Fenty Beauty’s Soft Glow foundation in Los Angeles, California.


Mihlali Ndamase shared her priceless moments with Rihanna on her Instagram stories. No doubt, photos and videos of Mihlali Ndamase with Rihanna have been making rounds on social media. They have gained thousands of comments and reactions.

In some of the now viral photos, the two were smiling as they posed for photos. Fans were quick to flood social media with their two cents.

However, Ndamase was not the only South African celebrity at the event. Media personality Linda Mtoba was also spotted in the mix. However, Mtoba is trending after her video with Rihanna made rounds.

No doubt, her conversation with Rihanna left many amused. The two were talking about Amapiano in one of the now viral videos. Controversial blogger Musa Khawula even took a swipe at their conversation, but Mzansi was quick to defend the media personality.

Musa Khawula posted on X, “Linda Mtoba is having a stupid conversation with Rihanna at the launch of Fenty Beauty’s The Soft Glow foundation in Los Angeles, California.”

One X user commented, “Hating on someone for doing something you won’t ever get the opportunity to do is wack.”

Another user added, “I don’t think you guys understand trying to create a conversation with someone as big as Rihanna. Anything will come out of your mouth, and Amapiano was the perfect target. I would’ve done the same, go, girl!”


With an illustrious career spanning years, she has since archived her billionaire status through a colourful business portfolio, which includes Fenty Beauty, Fenty Skin and Savage X Fenty.

Fenty Beauty has since become one of the most sought-after products in Africa, and in 2021, it was among Africa’s favourite beauty brands. According to the cosmetics education site Tajmeeli.com, Fenty Beauty products are popular in African countries like Kenya and Nigeria.

However, over the years, Rihanna has undoubtedly rubbed shoulders with several South African A-listers and often invites them to her events. In 2021, she invited award-winning actress Thuso Mbedu as part of her Savage x Fenty Vol 3. However, Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty is ranked the fifth-best beauty brand in the world in 2024.
