*After Rihanna rose to fame and declared her presence with her unique Caribbean/Bajan heritage, she is giving back to her home by becoming part of the tourism team.

According to reports, she has inked a deal with the Barbados Tourism Authority to promote the tropical island.

“Barbados is a place like no other and one of the reasons for this is the spirit and national pride of our people,” Rihanna said in a press statement “I want each and every visitor to this beautiful island to experience what makes this destination different from all others and that is the spirit and warmth of my fellow Barbadians.”

The Barbados Tourism Authority expressed its pride in bringing the singer on board.
