The parents of Rihanna are Ronald and Monica Fenty and they are native islanders. Rihanna has two younger brothers - Rajad and Rorrey. The childhood of the future singer did not differ from the childhood of majority of islanders - primary and then high school.

At the age of 15 years, Rihanna has had the luck to meet producer Evan Rogers, who, at that time, was holidaying in Barbados. After listening to her sing, he helped the talented girl by bringing her recorded songs to USA and dispatching them to all recording companies.
