  • Barbados Honors Rihanna as National Hero During Republic Ceremony 

    So we know Rihanna is a proud Bajan she loves her Barbados. She was already named an ambassador for the island back in 2018. Well now after Barbados has just declared itself a republic and has replaced Britain’s Queen Elizabeth as head of state with its very first President Dame Sandra Mason, Rihanna has been declared a national hero of Barbados.

    The Prime Minister said, “On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we therefore present to you, the designee, for national hero of Barbados, Ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty,”and “May you continue to shine like a diamond and continue to bring honor to your nation by your words, by your actions, and to do credit wherever you shall go.”

    With her new declaration, Rihanna becomes only the second woman and the 11th person to be declared a national hero of Barbados. And she now has the right to use the title “Right Honorable” in front of her name.
