Y’all know I am not a Rihanna stan. I stan for no one except my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. But I have to give credit where credit is due. And I am so happy to hear that Miss Robyn Rihanna Fenty is being awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters from the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus!
The University of the West Indies awards honorary degrees to individuals of eminence in the arts, sciences and other fields of intellectual endeavor, as well as to persons who have made outstanding regional or international contributions. And this year one of the recipients of an honorary Doctor of Letters is none other than Rihanna herself!
Doctor Robyn Rihanna Fenty!
The ceremony is scheduled for October 20 at the Cave Hill Campus. And it will be streamed online so friends, family and well-wishers could tune in to view the proceedings and see Rihanna accept her honorary doctorate degree.
And if you’re not familiar with the University of The West Indies, it’s website says:
Since its inception in 1948, The University of the West Indies (UWI) has evolved from a fledgling college in Jamaica with 33 students to a full-fledged, regional University with well over 40,000 students. Today, UWI is the largest, most longstanding higher education provider in the Commonwealth Caribbean, with four campuses in Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Open Campus.
