Barbadian megastar Robyn Rihanna Fenty may in fact have a favourite in the May 24 election race.
After her best friend Leandra Goodridge reposted a video of Barbados Labour Party (BLP) leader Mia Mottley today, with the caption, “watching my next Prime Minister all day on Bajantube”, the singing sensation replied, “Yeeeeeeeeessssssssssssss she deserves it”.
Mottley, who is vying to become this island’s eighth Prime Minister, immediately responded on Instagram saying: “I just want to thank Ri Ri for . . . all the love and support and blessings . . . . You know the whole of Barbados is so proud of you and behind you my dear.”
Today, the BLP leader took over Bajantube for the day, with a view to sharing with the electorate parts of her current daily routine, which includes election meetings and canvassing.
The Rihanna post created a big buzz on the Internet, with many people retweeting the endorsement.
