Many thanks to Peter Jordens for sharing articles from Nation News and Barbados Today on the honor that has been bestowed upon the renowned Bajan singer, Rihanna. On Independence Day (November 30, from 3:00 to 5:00pm) there will be a celebration as Westbury New Road is unveiled as Rihanna Drive:

Barbados’ most famous daughter will soon have a lasting landmark named after her right in the neighbourhood where she grew up.

In a statement a short while ago, the Ministry of Tourism announced: “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 at a two hour ceremony at Westbury New Road, from 3.00pm to 5.00pm on Independence Day.
