Macron expected to join Rihanna on education work in Senegal

Rihanna has been less vocal in her activism than some celebrities, but she has always been supportive of the LGBT community.

The goal of the conference is to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for education in the poorest of nations.

The heads of an association of Islamic religious groups in the African state demanded officials bar her from attending the Global Partnership for Education's financing conference in Senegal's capital, Dakar, on Friday (02Feb18) as they claimed she was a member of the Illuminati, a mythical group conspiracy theorists claim control world affairs. France is donating 200 million euros to the partnership.

It is not the first time the young French leader and the singer of "Umbrella" fame have met: she visited the Elysee Palace in July after tweeting him on the same issue.

While Julie Bishop hasn't responded directly, her office announced a $90 million ($97.7 million) pledge to "support quality and inclusive education worldwide through the Global Partnership for Education" on Friday.

According to the interview, the " sex was nothing insane ", and she could "describe his junk perfectly", if she ever has to. Daniels received the money from future President Trump through a Trump Organization representative, lawyer Michael Cohen .


Rihanna has also turned to twitter to spread her message by calling out presidents to honor their commitments in the next summit as GPE aims to raise $3.1 billion dollars over the next two years which will provide access in classrooms to 870 million children in 65 developing countries.

"We are here to raise money; we are here to build political will; we are here to draw attention to the urgency of the problem", she added. Without it, "you lose a child's future".

President Akufo-Addo left the country in the early hours of yesterday for a return trip to Senegal.

The "Work" singer is scheduled to visit the country for a conference on education in the country alongside French President Emmanuel Macron.
