Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is basking in the limelight.

Appearing on CTV’s The Social , Singh and the hosts talked about Rihanna’s workout routine as the singer prepares for the release of her newest album before the conversation abruptly turned to how Singh not only got a follow back from the music superstar on Instagram but also how he has direct messaged her.

One of the hosts on The Social asked about Singh’s reaction when he found out Rihanna was following him on Instagram.

“I get a call from my wife, and she goes ‘RiRi is following you’ and she screams into the phone,” he said.

Singh downplayed the event responding to his wife by saying the event was “cool” and “awesome”.

But Singh’s wife told him: “No, this is the best day of my life.”

Recounting the story further, Singh went on to say at the time he thought to himself: “Better than our wedding day?”

His wife apparently read his thoughts as Singh said his wife told him emphatically: “Better than our wedding day.”

“She was really excited for us, for her, for me, I think it was a cute thing,” Singh said.

Singh revealed he had already been following the Umbrella hitmaker and after receiving the follow back from her, said he had direct messaged Rihanna.

He remained tight-lipped about what he wrote to Rihanna only saying: “I thanked her and I was honoured for the follow and then she responded to that.”

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister hopeful also talked about what he has done to prepare physically for the rigour of the cross country election campaign.

“I was working out heavy right before the election started,” Singh said.

“You’re up against a challenge and you need to be mentally aware, physically ready, spiritually your soul, your energy has to be good.”
