The Republic of Barbados just named Rihanna a national hero

Big things are happening currently in Barbados. The island country has just become a Republic and on the eve of this historical hallmark Bajan-born Robyn ‘Rihanna’ Fenty received a special award from Prime Minister Mia Mottley as a National Hero.

The ceremony took place in Bridgetown, which is the 33-year old Pop princess’ hometown. The award was celebrated by Clara Lionel Fds, a non-profit founded by Rihanna dedicated to emergency relief and educating the disenfranchised.

“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. 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,” Mottley said in her speech. 

The Bajan National Hero award has only ever been given to 11 other people and now Rihanna joins them.

Rihanna now has the title of The Right Honourable and in her acceptance speech she gushed at the honour of such recognition.

Rihanna is slated to release new music soon following the 5-year anniversary of her last project Anti. She stated in an interview with Vogue that she’s been in the studio cooking something fresh for her fans.
