It looks like Rihanna is expanding her Fenty beauty brand into the hair category. Last week, the singer-turned-entrepreneur filed a trademark for “Fenty Hair,” according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The line could include items such as clips, barrettes, scrunchies, wigs, curlers, “elastic bands for hair binding,” “decorative articles for the hair,” hairbrushes, hair extensions, and combs, among many others.

The trademark was filed under Rihanna’s company, Roraj Trade LLC, with Scott J. Slavik as the attorney on record. Currently, no other details regarding Fenty Hair have been revealed. A hair line for Fenty would mark Rihanna’s latest venture for her widely successful and popular Fenty brand. That empire currently includes Fenty Beauty, lingerie line Savage x Fenty, and Fenty Skin.

So far, 2022 has been an incredible year for the Nigerian singer who reached the number one position on Billboard’s Hot 100 after her vocals featured on Future’s “Wait For You.” Also, the international superstar made history at the 2022 BET Awards when she became the first African female artist to win a BET award when she took home the Best International Act Prize.

4. Facebook slammed for ‘gagging’ Kenya whistleblower

Dozens of rights groups and campaigners have signed a letter calling on Facebook to “drop all attempts to silence whistleblower Daniel Motaung.” They accuse the tech giant of trying to “crush his efforts to improve labor conditions for Facebook moderators in Kenya and around the world.” Mr. Motaung says he was paid about $2.20 (£1.80) per hour by Sama, one of Facebook’s contractors, to review posts including beheadings and child abuse. He is suing both firms in a Kenyan court.

In response, both Sama and Facebook applied for a gag order on Mr. Motaung, saying that he could prejudice the outcome of the case by talking to the media. Facebook and its parent company Meta have not responded to the letter — which was signed by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, author Shoshana Zuboff, and the Africa Freedom of Information Centre, among others.

5. Lingard confirms free transfer to Nottingham Forest after Man Utd exit

Jesse Lingard has agreed to join Nottingham Forest on a free transfer. The England international left Manchester United this summer after his contract expired. He shared a video on social media confirming his switch to Forest. The 29-year-old was linked with a move back to West Ham, where he thrived on loan during the second half of the 2020-21 season, as well as MLS. But he has opted to join the newly-promoted Forest instead as he looks to capitalize on increased playing time.

The club confirmed the arrival of the attacking midfielder on their official website, saying: “Nottingham Forest are delighted to confirm the signing of Jesse Lingard.” Lingard announced his move with a video shared on Twitter with the caption: “Ready for my new chapter. Let’s gooo babyyyyyy.”
