Rihanna stars in new short film “GuavaIsland”
The movie stars Donald Glover as Deni Maroon – a musician who wants to put on a festival for the people of Guava while Rihanna plays his long time factory worker girlfriend, Kofi. The movie also stars Letita Wright who is best known for her role as Shuri in Black Panther.
The movie is inspired by classic movies of the African diaspora such As Touki Bouki, city of God and Black Orpheus. The 54 minute movie had a stunning parallel between Guava Island’s story and the recent real life death of rapper Nipsey Hussle.
