Rihanna comes under fire for cultural appropriation

Rihanna criticised for using a song with Hadith at her Savage x Fenty fashion show

The mogul has come under fire from the Islamic community for using a song with Hadith in her Savage X Fenty show. Hadith are the sacred religious texts/words by the Prophet Mohammed used as guiding principles by those of the Islamic faith.

The Savage X Fenty lingerie presentation happened over the weekend with a star-studded runway and was praised for its inclusivity by showcasing a range of body types and ethnicities. For the newest instalment of her celebrated, unconventional fashion show, Rihanna tapped an array of models, singers, dancers, and all-out cultural forces to show off the collection. 

Her annual lingerie show was released on Amazon Prime on Friday and featured star models like Cara Delevingne, Bella Hadid and Irina Shayk.

However, the praise has since turned to criticism. The song that caused all the criticism is called “Doom” produced by CouCou Chloe. The track contains vocals reading out Hadith sped up to make an upbeat dance track.

Rihanna has yet to respond.
