A Few Pics from the Africa Rising Festival...

Whoever does Rihanna's makeup is to be commended because they have nearly perfected the technique on her.  Her face is almost always flawless.

Rihanna and Jay-Z performed.

Usher performed.

Models Naomi Campbell and Tyson Beckford attended the 3rd Annual Thisday Africa Rising Festival in Abuja Nigeria.  Thisday is set to raise awareness for African issues through the annual festival.  This year's theme "Africa Rising" will focus on finding sustainable solutions for the region.  The festival will also travel to Lagos (July 13), Washington DC (Aug. 1) and London, England (October 14) with performances by Mary J, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Jay-Z and Usher among others.  The festival is set to project positive images of Africa by showcasing the renaissance of Africa's music, fashion and the arts.
