The legendary and hilarious comedian Dave Chappelle is set to host Rihanna’s 3rd annual Diamond Ball.
”I’m thrilled that the incomparable Dave Chappelle will kick things off as the official host of this year’s Diamond Ball and Kendrick Lamar will take the stage for an unforgettable performance,” Rihanna mentioned in a statement. “I’m proud of the Clara Lionel Foundation’s significant impact in the world over the years and deeply grateful for the continued support and commitment to advancing our mission.”
The star-studded event will take place on Sept. 14 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Although Rihanna has served up memorable looks, the black tie event is a fundraising gala geared toward her own charity, Clara Lionel Foundation. The foundation is titled after her grandparents in the fight against injustice, inequality, and poverty; as well as access to education and health.
This year Kendrick Lamar is on the books to perform for what should be an amazing performance.
