Barbados Honored Famous Singer By Naming A Street After Her - Rihanna Drive
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.
The star shared with her fans how happy and honored she was.
???????????? “Welcome to Rihanna Drive... My home. My whole life was shaped on this very road. I was just a little girl riding bikes, running around barefoot, and flying kites in the cemetery, but I had BIG dreams. Dreams that were born and realized right here. Thank you to my family, my country and the people of Westbury New Road! You will forever be a part of who I am, and for that I am honored to have this place named after me.”
Following the news, the fanbase was immediately ready to relocate. Some people will surely want to move to Barbados now. That day, Twitter was filled with comments from the fans.
