The fifth annual Diamond Ball is right around the corner and we don’t know about you but we cannot wait to see which celebrities will be strutting their stuff on the carpet this year!

In addition to that, Variety has reported that this year’s event will honor Shaun King and the Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley.

In a statement, Rihanna said, “I am particularly honored to present Prime Minister Mottley and Shaun King with this year’s Diamond Ball Awards for their groundbreaking work. We are so thankful to them for joining us and making the night better than ever.”

Seth Meyers will host the evening festivities and performances this year include Pharrell and DJ Khaled. Last year, Issa Rae hosted the show while Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino performed.

If you didn’t already know, this event was created in order to benefit Rih Rih’s organization, Clara Lionel Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to fund education and emergency response programs around the world.

Sottlehaun King is known for using his social media platforms to bring awareness to injustice events that happen around the world. Mia Mottley became the first woman to ever be Prime Minister of Barbados back in 2018.

The fifth annual Diamond Ball takes place on Thursday, September 12.
