Rihanna follows Jagmeet Singh on Instagram
NDP leader Jagmeet Singh’s popularity has crossed borders and the newest fan seems to Grammy-award-winning musician and founder of Fenty fashion line, Rihanna. The artist seems to have a thing for Canadian leaders. The singer first followed Liberal leader and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau from a Global Citizen several years ago.
While Rihanna did not endorse either of the leaders, her brand new follow on social media caught the Internet’s eye. NDP spokesperson Melanie Richer said Singh felt “great to be followed by her” and “loves her last album ‘Anti’.” NDP MPP in Toronto, Bhutila Karpoche was quick to tweet, “We just got Rihanna on board.” “Now two more weeks to get to work work work.”
The ‘Umbrella’ singer follows several other politicians, including French President Emmanuel Macron and US Democratic presidential hopefuls Beto O’Rourke and Kamala Harris.
