The veteran actress, Jenifer Lewis, has reached out to both Cardi B and Rihanna, appreciating them for sticking to their guns and not accepting the offer to perform at the Super Bowl next year. You will recall that sometime last month we reported that Rihanna had declined the offer to perform at the halftime show organized at the Super Bowl 2019.
An inside source speaking to US Weekly said that the NFL had really wanted Rihanna to perform on the Super Bowl stage next year. The musician however declined as she believed the NFL were wrong for sanctioning Kaepernick in the kneeling controversy. According to the inside source, Rihanna stood for what she deemed right.
Performing at the show would have been a great opportunity for the singer to promote her album she plans to drop next year as well as her album tour. Jenifer Lewis shared a video on her Instagram page to express her congratulations to both artistes for standing for what is right. She went on to recite a poem she wrote to appreciate them, “That’s enough.”

“That’s Enough” By Jenifer Lewis
Everybody check your Soul at the Super Bowl
Take away their fun before they shoot your son
Our ancestors kneeled in the cotton fields
Whites, Blacks, Jews, we’ve gotta refuse
Get a backbone before a bullet comes down
On the back of your own
Before another hate crime
Be the gladiators of our time
You’re the gladiators of our time
You wanna standing ovation?
Take a knee for the next generation
