(AllHipHop Rumors) Let me entertain this. The fine nation of Jamaica has pulled a heist of sorts. They have somehow gotten people to believe that Rihanna is now from there, not Barbados, the place we have always known she’s from.
Where did this all start?
Rihanna is rumored to have gotten her Jamaican citizenship recently.
Rihanna somehow managed to spark the hashtag #RihannaIsJamaican and also a beef between Jamaicans and Bajans. “Jamaicans, you know, if we pretend like Rihanna is Jamaican, the world would believe us and there is nothing the Bajans can do about it. Let’s kidnap Rihanna’s nationality, y’all.”
A single tweet got Jamaican Twitter users and prompting a whole lot of back and forth with Caribbeans. The only thing is The Bajans are not playing! “RIHANNA IS BAJAN. BARBADOS. SHE IS FROM BARBADOS. JAMAICANS F*** OFF!!!!!” said one person on social media.
Very common misconception, many think that Sean Paul is from Panama and that Rihanna is from a small eastern Caribbean island called Barbados. They’re both very much Jamaican. Sean is from Kingston, Jamaica and Rihanna is from St. Ann, Jamaica. Icons! 🇯🇲
