Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley stated that Barbados was honored to be able to confer the title on the outstanding native, who has contributed so much to the island’s profile across the world. Mottley said, “Rihanna has a deep love for this country and this is reflected in her philanthropy, especially in the areas of health and education. She also shows her patriotism in the way she gives back to Barbados and continues to treasure the island as her home. She has demonstrated, beyond her success as a pop icon, significant creative acumen and shrewdness in business. It is therefore fitting that we engage and empower her to play a more definitive role as we work to transform Barbados.” the prime minister added, noting that her charitable contributions have also been extremely significant to the island.”
