Barbados Is Honoring Rih Rih With A Street Of Her Own

Barbados’ most famous daughter will soon have a lasting landmark named after her right in the neighborhood where she grew up. Rihanna has been very consistent with the charity work she does for Barbados and she is finally being rewarded on behalf of her home

The Ministry of Tourism announced the soon-to-be name change in a statement:

“The Government of Barbados will on Independence Day, Thursday 30th November, 2017 officially change the name of  Westbury New Road located in  St. Michael  to Rihanna Drive in honour of Barbadian superstar Ms. Robyn Rihanna Fenty who grew up in Westbury New Road.”

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Rihanna are scheduled to unveil the new signage in a two hour ceremony at Westbury New Road, from 3.00pm to 5.00pm on 51st Independence Day, November 30.

Congrats, Rih Rih!
