Rihanna has been known by many names and titles over the years and now it seems her latest title will be the most important one yet.
The government of Barbados has appointed Robyn Fenty (Rihanna) as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary. Her duties as an ambassador include “promoting education, tourism and investment.”
Her new roles and responsibilities has made it compulsory for people to refer to her as “Her Excellency” or “Madam Ambassador”. She will subsequently get a diplomatic passport, travel privileges and diplomatic immunity.
“I couldn’t be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country,” she said in a statement released by the Barbadian government. “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”
“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 this country and continues to treasure the island as her home,” Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley said in her own statement.
Mottley added, “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.”
