Are Barbadians truly poor? VIP Tickets for “LOUD” sold out via Bajans, Personalities have their say…

One of the big items this week was despite a recession (or mismanaged finances by Governmental departments), is the fact how VIP tickets for Rihanna’s “LOUD” concert have sold out…

There are also certain Bajans who say Rihanna performing here so close on Crop Over is bad for the season, people will choose her or Kadooment - whenever she gets here will be good or bad depending on the circumstances... If people can promote or advertise correctly, Rihanna's passage should not interfere with Kadooment's typical revelry!

{The latest foolishness surrounding the concert is that it should have been FREE? H’mm so should Pic O’De Crop, Cohobblopot and Insomnia the person who made such an uneducated remark as that now reveals why small things entertain small minds… Get back to your skirt hems and pants’ cuffs, if someone says what has pertained to Cricket now… If all tickets are sold or a sufficient majority to reap a profit then indicate you would televise it LIVE, but then who pays CBC?}

This is a vastly depressed economy at the moment, people are losing jobs and if re-employed are doing more work for less pay – where do they get the money from to buy out ALL the VIP tickets? I can’t help but wonder, and think of Slinger Francisco;-

So when you bounce up Jean and Dinah
Rosita and Clementina
, round the corner posing
Bet your life is something they selling
And if you catch them
You can get em all for nothing
Don’t make no row, the yankees gone…”

Quite recently at Accra Beach Resort, Axses Communications' founder John Gibbs bragged how he's attending Rihanna...

But if you get the perspective of a technological guru, John Gibbs, he is going just to be there {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

Gibbs told the Information Society of Barbados how he’ll be standing on his seat singing & cheering…

Another very loyal supporter of Rihanna, is the Governor of the Central Bank, he says the chance to watch Rihanna perform in her own hometown is a once in a lifetime opportunity {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

The Governor clearly underpins why I expect better behaviour from Rihanna, she is an inspiration to future generations of Bajans who who want to do music and as beacon for such talent, Dr Worrell feels all Bajans should come and respect her talent.

{FILE IMAGE} Dr Worrell insisted that every Barbadian who can attend should make it their duty as Rihanna is integral in promoting this country to visitors far or near...

Dr DeLisle Worrell says that Rihanna’s level of performance combined with her nationality is better than any ad campaign from the Tourism Authority {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-

With or without contract (to the Tourism Authority), the Governor urged, Rihanna is a clearly defined Ambassador for Barbados as she keeps her accent and speaks of her homeland – he cited how an interpreter in the Comoros Islands had an 8 year old son who is a fan of Rihanna and so she knew of Barbados

What the Governor’s remarks made me fully aware of is why Rihanna should be careful of what she says and does as she is a role model and is an inspiration, it is the same way people all over the world are advised be careful of what you put on facebook since a future employee may see something they do not like and you lose a good job for a silly photo or an enraged comment!
