Nyasha Matonhodze Of Zimbabwe Is The Face Fenty Beauty Africa's Global Launch!

Rihanna and Fenty Beauty recently took to social media to share the news of their upcoming Africa launch, set for May 27. 

Zimbabwe was to the surprise of many listed as one of the several countries in which Rihanna's beauty care line was going to be launched in and it has now been revealed that the UK-based Zimbabwean model is the face of Fenty Beauty Africa's global launch.

Nyasha Matonhodze was posted on Fenty Beauty's Instagram page before she shared the news. I’ve had a lot of “pinch me” moments in my career, but I have to say this one hit differently.
To be the face of @fentybeauty Africa’s global launch is one thing, but as a deeply proud Zim Girl and knowing this will be launching in Zimbabwe where my family and grandma are going to see it felt particularly special.

Colourism is still something we are healing from, but when beauty companies make an effort to cater to all shades it does genuinely make everyone feel included. Thank you @badgalriri I’m incredibly honoured to be a part of this campaign and most importantly its message.

Nyasha Matonhodze is a Zimbabwean-British model who has graced the runway for Louis Vuitton, Burberry & Versace among others while featuring in and being on the cover of multiple magazines.
