The Barbados government says it will  rename Westbury New Road in honour of former resident and Barbadian-born international pop icon, Robyn Rihanna Fenty, on Thursday to coincide with the island’s celebration of its 51st anniversary of political independence from Britain.

The Ministry of Tourism said that Westbury New Road, which will be renamed Rihanna Drive, is a growing tourist attraction, as many taxi drivers and tour bus operators show it as a place of interest when transporting visitors around the island.

“Additionally, it was thought necessary to highlight the many achievements of the Grammy Award-winning singer, entrepreneur and philanthropist,” a government statement noted.

It said the ceremony, dubbed, “Our Diamond – The Rihanna Drive Project,” will be attended by residents of Westbury New Road, Government officials and other specially-invited guests. It will feature the unveiling of a fingertip pole sign and  an 8 x 5 signboard by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Rihanna, as well by performances by local entertainers.
