Rihanna will have a street in her hometown of Saint Michael, Barbados named after her.
The Bajan bad girl never forgot her roots, and over the years has done a ton for the Caribbean country, from fundraising and charity work to taking part in international tourism campaigns. And soon, a piece of the island will bear her name. The street formerly known as Westbury New Road will be re-christened Rihanna Drive.
This past Friday, the Government of Barbados Ministry of Tourism announced, “The Government of Barbados will on Independence Day, Thursday November 30th...officially change the name of Westbury New Road located in St. Michael to Rihanna Drive in honor of Barbadian superstar Ms. Robyn Rihanna Fenty, who grew up in Westbury New Road.”
On Barbados’s Independence day, Rihanna and the Prime Minister of Barbados, Freundel Stuart, will be present for the two-hour ceremony to unveil the street’s new signage.
