The tendency to name streets after notable people has been around for hundreds of years. Very often, presidents, artists, and other public figures of the past are honored in this way.
Recently, Barbados got a street named Rihanna Drive. The hometown of the international icon Rihanna decided to name a street after the superstar. The singer grew up in the capital Bridgetown. The government decided to rename the street Westbury New Road where the future star lived as a child. The plan was announced back in October. Only now, the street name has been changed officially.
The authorities invited Rihanna to attend a special ceremony in Bridgetown. The star took a snap of the Rihanna Drive sign and posted it on Instagram.
