RIHANNA AND President Emmanuel Macron will be meeting in Senegal this week to promote children's education.

They will be attending the Global Partnership for Education Conference - a conference aimed at promoting children’s education through the singer's charity organisation, The Clara Lionel Foundation.

This will be Macron's sixth trip to Africa since his 2017 election - but this time he will be joining the Bajan superstar to both push for more money for young girls' education and help him carry his messages on climate, immigration and the fight against terrorism.

This is not the first time Rih has linked up with the French leader - she traveled to meet the President and his wife Brigitte Macron at Elysee Palace to discuss matters concerning education last summer.

Rihanna and Macron will meet in Dakar on Friday (Feb 2) with schoolchildren, the president's office said.
