Rihanna causes social media frenzy by 'endorsing' Mia Mottley
Superstar, philanthropist and successful businesswoman Rihanna, seems to be among those Barbadians aboard team Barbados Labour Party (BLP) for Thursday's general election.
And what better place for this all to unfold, than on the social media platform that RiRi has championed - Instagram.
Commenting on a post by one of her close friends Leandra Goodridge, Rihanna suggested that she will be backing BLP leader Mia Mottley to govern Barbados over the next five years.
Goodridge commented on the Instagram Stories of Bajantube, writing, “Watching my next Prime Minister all day on @Bajantube stories”.
This was followed by the apparent endorsement by Rihanna who replied: “Yes…. She deserves it!”
And those few words caused a stir among Barbadians, who quickly jumped on the discussion:
bajangrlinasouthernwrld seemed to know it was coming: "Waited for this endorsement for months! Bout time!!!!!"
"She got mine too," kimkosi1 chimed in.
crystal.haynes simply wrote, "#AllAboard! 🐝🐝🐝".
The BLP leader also took note of this endorsement, thanking Rihanna for "all that love and support and blessings".
Mottley also thanked Goodridge for her post:
