The Nation Newspapers, in their article, quoted Forbes’ official Instagram page as the source of Rihanna’s comment.

But a check on Forbes’ Instagram page shows that they made two posts about Rihanna, which had no such quote.

Pulse then did a thorough search of all Rihanna’s most recent interviews and also found no such quote.

No report of this Rihanna’s comment gave a credible source of the quote, which is a red flag.

Conclusion
After all checks, Pulse can confirm that this quote is fake. Rihanna has no known link to the Igbo tribe.

In a 2019 interview with The New York Times Style Magazine, the billionaire singer spoke of her ancestry.

“In my own household, my father is half black, half white. My mom is black from South America. I was seeing diversity. That’s all I knew,” she said.

Her mother, Monica Braithwaite, is Afro-Guyanese, while her father, Ronald Fenty, is of Afro-Barbadian and the British Isles ancestry.
