LOUD Concert a Hit

It was big and it was loud. Rihanna showed the 25, 000 strong crowd at the Kensington Oval why she's an international sensation by wowing them with her string of hits.

I wasn't able to attend but everyone I knew who was in attendance woke up happy this morning.

Good job, Ri-ri. I can only imagine how difficult it is to perform in front of a home crowd.

Only a few hours to go...

Well, peoples, in about four hours Kensington Oval will come alive with the sounds of Rihanna's Loud concert.

An estimated crowd of 25,000 is expected to attend the concert and persons from other islands have been flying in all week to attend what is probably the most high profile event held here.

Meantime, Ri-ri is enjoying her week at home, shooting a documentary and soaking up some sun.

Good luck tonight, Ri-ri!

Cover Drive opening for Rihanna's Loud Concert in Barbados

Meet Cover Drive, the Bajan pop/hiphop group that will open for Rihanna at her Loud concert at Kensington Oval on Friday. Enjoy their hit Lick Ya Down below.

Wet, wet Kadooment

It was a wet, wet Kadooment here in Bim today, but no rain could stop this jam as thousands of revellers took to the streets.

Over 20 bands wined and "jonesed" their way from Warrens to Spring Garden, and even Bajan superstar Rihanna made it out in the showers to play 'mas.

Congrats to Edwin Yearwood, whose Cova de Road emerged the winner in the Road March Competition, and to Rupee and Mr. Dale, whose hits I Am a Bajan and Wow respectively tied for second place.

And, earlier I forgot to congratulate Pic-O-de-Crop winner David "Popsicle" Hall, the first timer who beat out about four former monarchs to cop the title. He gave a fantastic performance on Friday night.

Anywho, I have some more photos of today's revelry on the road to share with you, and then, next stop, Rihanna's Loud concert on Friday! It's gonna be a fun week, peoples.
