Rihanna’s Diamond Ball looks to be a must-attend event. Rihanna shared on Twitter the 2018 event will be hosted by Issa Rae and will bring Childish Gambino to the stage.
“Issa Rae and Childish Gambino were the dream duo for the fourth annual Diamond Ball and they’re coming!!! We are honored and grateful to have them help us celebrate the Clara Lionel Foundation this year,” Rihanna said in a statement.
The Clara Lionel foundation was named Clara and Lionel Braithwaithe, Rihanna’s grandparents, and was created to provide support to impoverished communities around the world. This year’s event will provide the Diamond Ball Award to Global Citizen’s CEO Hugh Evans for the work he has committed toward poverty, gender inequality and climate change.
The 2018 Diamond Ball is one month away. It will take over Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on September 13.
