It first started in September 2020 when Majimbo revealed that she landed a lucrative deal with Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Cosmetics as a brand ambassador. “My 19-year-old self literally got a chance to work with Fenty Official. I’m so proud!!!! Thanking the Fenty fam they’ve been so amazing and Rihanna for this amazing brand,” posted the hilarious Majimbo on her Instagram page.
