On Monday (Nov. 29), Rihanna was bestowed with the honor of national hero in her native Barbados, adding to the revelry of the island nation becoming the world's newest republic.
Rihanna has always proudly repped her home country of Barbados, and now she can officially call herself an official member of its government. The superstar singer and businesswoman was named an ambassador for the island nation, adding to all the bags and other honors she’s collected over the years.
It is not where you’re at, it’s where you are from. Rihanna will be honored with her own street name in her hometown.
Rihanna's home nation of Barbados will honor the international pop star and humanitarian by renaming a popular road there after her in November.
It appears that New Orleans rapper and Young Money Entertainment boss Lil Wayne has signed a new deal with Barbados distillery Bumbu Rum.
Rihanna is no stranger to turning heads no matter where she is, but the pop superstar’s recent showing within her home country of Barbados was definitely special. The “BBHMM” singer paraded through the streets for Kadooment Day in festival garb, culminating the end of the Crop Over celebration in the island nation.
