Rihanna has been appointed as ‘Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary’ in her home country of Barbados.
Speaking about the development, the singer said she was proud to take the title. She stated, “I couldn’t be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country. Every Barbadian is going to have to play their role in this current effort, and I’m ready and excited to take on the responsibility. I look forward to working with Prime Minister Mottley and her team to reimagine Barbados.”
Barbados’ Prime Minister, Mia Amor Mottley, said Rihanna had a deep love for the country, which was reflected in her philanthropy, especially in the areas of health and education. She added, “She also shows her patriotism in the way she gives back to this country and continues to treasure the island as her home. She has also 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.”
