The road formerly known as Westbury New Road is now to be recognized as “Rihanna Drive.” While featuring a plaque, commemorating the music star, the plaque includes some of her own words:
“Welcome to Rihanna Drive… My home. My whole life was shaped on this very road. I was just a little island girl riding bikes, running around barefoot and flying kites in the cemetery, but I had BIG dreams. Dreams that were born and realized right here.
Thank you to my family, my country and the people of Westbury New Road! You will forever be a part of who I am, and for that I am honoured to have this place named after me.”
The music star gave a speech, in the proceedings, she noted the importance of following your dreams: “ I guarantee you the only thing that got me here was believing in my dream.”
