Rihanna, who has not given concerts for 8 years, performed at the Asia's richest man's "wedding of the century" for a shocking sum

Rihanna performed at a wedding in India for a shocking sum

From March 1 to March 3, India is hosting pre-wedding celebrations for the son of Asia's richest man, Anant Ambani, and his bride, the daughter of billionaire Radhika Merchant. On one of the days, the iconic Rihanna performed for the invited guests, who numbered more than 1000 people. The singer hasn't given concerts for 8 years, but here she delighted the crowd with a 90-minute set of her own hits. This is not surprising as the star was paid 6.3 million dollars (241 million hryvnias) for an hour and a half on stage.

The shocking amount of money paid to the singer was reported by the Daily Mail, among others. The video of the star's performance at the "wedding of the century" is actively shared online.

Rihanna performed 19 songs, including her most iconic hits. These included the tracks "B*** Better Have My Money", "Work", "All Of The Lights", "We Found Love" and, of course, the cult single "Diamonds".

The artist, who became a mother for the second time in August 2023, appeared on stage for the first time after performing at the Super Bowl, where she actually announced her second pregnancy. Thus, every Rihanna show becomes the main topic online due to their rarity.

The 36-year-old star even hinted to journalists about her plans to return to the stage. Speaking to reporters at the airport before her flight, she said, "I love India. The show was the best. I have not participated in a real show for eight years. That's why I want to come back."

Speaking to the world's tech bosses and industry moguls, Rihanna said from the stage, "Thanks to the Ambani family, I'm here tonight in honor of Anant and Radhika. Thank you for having me here. God bless your union. I wish you all the best. Congratulations!"

It is worth noting that as of 2024, the groom's father, the richest man in Asia, Mukesh Ambani, is estimated to be worth $117 billion. The three-day pre-wedding party, according to the source, cost the bride and groom's parents $150 million. The wedding itself is scheduled for this summer.

It is also worth adding that not all netizens were enthusiastic about Rihanna's appearance on stage. After analyzing the video of the pre-wedding celebrations, they concluded that the singer had not "earned" her multimillion-dollar fee. By the way, the media suggests that the amount of six million is only an official figure and that in reality, the bride and groom's family paid for Rihanna's concert many times more, including flights and her hotel accommodation.

Meanwhile, skeptics criticize the star for her "lazy" and "dull" show. They write that they are annoyed by the way Rihanna "doesn't even try to sing". "I've always said she's an incredibly lazy performer... She never took the time to improve her performances," one of the haters said.
