Thousands of Barbadians flocked to Independence Square last night to a free concert/birthday party for local Grammy winner Rihanna. Many of the things that occurred there are stirring up heated debate on the call in programme this morning and I decided that I would do a rundown of the good, bad and funny of the evening. I'm still awaiting the pics for u so I'll probably insert those into the rundown later.
Before that though, I came across some pics of Rihanna's arrival at the airport, courtesy of the websites Ultimate Rihanna and Nation News.com.
Rihanna was greeted on the tarmac by Prime Minister of Barbados, David Thompson, and his wife Mara (far left).
Several presentations were made to Rihanna in the VIP Lounge.
After emerging to a rapturous welcome by hundreds of Barbadians, Rihanna was treated to performances by students from her alma maters Charles F. Broome Primary and Combermere.
Then she was off in a motorcade from the airport to her hotel, where she rested up for the evening's festivities.
I'll deal with the good, the bad and the funny of the tribute show a bit later.
