One of Rihanna’s most noticeable and closet friends, from their frequent instagram post together. Childhood friends from Barbados, the pair is as close as they come. Forde acts as a steady member of fashion forward RiRi’s  entourage. An avid photographer for RiRi, who puts the hashtag #MTFPhotogray whenever she shares a photo taken by Forde. Also, known to defend her BFF and keep her away from all the hate, Forde can only be defined as a true best friend.

Like how all friendships have a rough start Sonita and Rihanna are no different. Meeting at 11, they became total besties. Doctor and mother in their native Barbados, Alexander keeps RiRi humble. You can see Sonita or Dr. A, as she goes by on the gram, making appearances, as she usually pops up for galas, hometown visits, and birthday celebrations.
