Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin staged the biggest synchronized beauty launch across 8 countries on the African continent, with Kenya being one of them, on Friday May 27th, 2022.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, the brand hosted the official launch party for celebrities, influencers, retail partners and media alike, dubbed “Fenty Club”, in Nairobi where over +100 attendees discovered the Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin product offering and were treated to a special performance by Nikita Kering. Of the notable attendees were Julia Gaitho, Makena Njeri, beauty and lifestyle digital content creators such as, Joy Kendi, Luciana Nyawira, Hali Oduor, Sandra Gathithu, Ajib Gathoni, Miss Kenya- Sharon Obara and make up artists such as Linda Jenna, Nicole Duki, Valary Mdeizi, Willy Collins and Ikhlaas popuraly known as Iku Mua from Mombasa- among other notable people of influence from different spaces and industries.

Rihanna created both Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin with a global vision in mind to reinforce the notion of” Beauty For All.”. It is this brand ethos that makes Rihanna’s decision to expand her Fenty brands to Africa a historic milestone and natural next step.

“I am a proud Bajan who feels a close connection to Africa and to its people. I’ve had the pleasure, the privilege, to spend time on the continent and those experiences never leave you. Now, being able to bring Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin to 8 African countries and then hopefully more in the future – means so much to me.” Rihanna.
