On Tuesday, American star and beauty mogul, Rihanna, through her official Twitter page, revealed plans to launch her Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin brands in Africa.
The ‘We found love’ hitmaker, stated that the brands would, from May 27, become available to eight African countries, including Kenya, Botswana, Ghana, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
“I have been waiting for this moment. Fenty Beauty and Fenty Skin are finally dropping in Africa. Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe…we are coming on May 27th and that’s just the beginning of Fenty Africa,” Rihanna wrote on her Twitter handle.
However, it is seemingly the inclusion of Kenya in the selected few countries that caught Ugandans’ nerves.
A section of social media users in Uganda took offense after the ‘Work’ singer Rihanna snubbed the Pearl of Africa in her plans.
One of the Ugandan ‘patriot’ users, @I’mCharlotte, as her Twitter Page name, questioned the Umbrella crooner why she settled on Kenya, sensationally claiming that the whole of Nairobi is not connected to electricity.
Charlotte’s claim caused a storm on social media. The unforgiving Kenyans on Twitter descended on her, insisting that Ugandans have no moral authority to talk about Kenya in terms of development.
Through the #KenyavsUganda hashtag that was trending at the time of filing this report, the cybernauts, in turn, unleashed hilarious tackles to show the “sorry state of the President Yoweri Museveni-led country”.
Here are some of the hysterical memes that have gone viral on the social web that will definitely light up your day.
