All appears to be ready for the arrival of Barbados’ new Grammy winning artist Rihanna, who will be returning home to be feted by her country at a free concert that will host top local artists.

Rihanna will be met on arrival at the Grantley Adams International Airport by a delegation that includes Prime Minister David Thompson, members of his Cabinet as well as the principals of the Charles F Broome and Combermere Schools, which she attended.

There will also be a cultural performance at the airport featuring schools and cultural groups.

The singer, who wont a Grammy for her tune “Umbrella”, will be the guest of honour at a free concert at Independence Square in the heart of the capital to titled “Believe – a Tribute to Rihanna” and featuring a host of local artistes including Shontelle, Edwin, Livvi Frank, Lil’ Rick, Arturo Tappin, Kid Site and calypso monarch Red Plastic Bag.

Reports from outside of Barbados indicate that the singer is looking forward to returning home and is “thrilled”

Rihanna is flying back to Barbados tomorrow. Her home country is extremely proud of her success.

Rihanna told The Sun: “They’re doing a tribute for me the day after The Brits. I fly straight out.

“I miss everything about the place. Whenever I return I never want to leave.”

PM David Thompson is scheduled to make a brief speech and will present the singer with what has been officially termed as a “national gift”. I guess we will have to wait to see what that is.

The concert is being covered by BET .
