Barbados has named Rihanna a national hero in honour of the country’s transition to an independent republic.

The country’s Prime Minister, Mia Mottley, stated at an investiture ceremony for the pop singer, fashion star, and businesswoman, “May you continue to shine like a diamond,” referring to her 2012 single Diamonds.

Barbados’ most renowned native, Rihanna, was named an official ambassador for culture and youth in 2018. Her Bajan accent has never been softened, and her music, while influenced by pop, R&B, and dance, has remained true to her Caribbean roots.

“The world’s imagination was captured by her quest of excellence with her ingenuity, discipline, and, above all, her tremendous commitment to the land of her birth,” Mottley said.

“On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we thus present to you Ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the designee for a national hero of Barbados,” she continued.
