Rihanna and Drake honour young fan who has died of cancer

The singers met Megan Flores, a fan battling cancer, in Miami in March

Rihanna and Drake have each paid tribute to a young fan who has died of cancer.

US charity Make-A-Wish arranged for Miami-based Megan Flores to meet Drake, her favourite singer, in March as it became clear that she was no longer responding to treatment. He later dedicated his album ‘Views’ to her.

After hearing that Flores had lost her battle with the disease, Drake shared a picture of her on his Instagram over the weekend with the caption: “Rest in peace my angel. I know heaven is celebrating today. Thank you for the moments and emotions we share I am blessed to have known you in this lifetime.”

Meanwhile, Rihanna revealed on her own Instagram that Drake had introduced her to Flores, whom she described as “an angel on Earth”.

Sharing a picture of her, Drake and Flores, Rihanna wrote: “I had the pleasure of meeting an angel on earth! After my show in Miami, @champagnepapi introduced me to Megan! She’s inspired me so much with her strength and her perspective on life! So fearless and kind!”

“It’s heavy news that I can’t slide in your DMs anymore like I used to!!,” she continued. “There was always a smile waiting for me there! You brightened any day! Rest up baby girl! We will miss you!!
