Ricardo Drue who was born in Antigua to an Antiguan mother has skyrocketed to fame in the past few years and is widely recognized across the globe as a Soca Icon. He is well known in Trinidad and other Caribbean countries where he has developed a huge fan base. He has also been a part of the performer line-up for Miami Carnival in recent times. His appeal to fans young and old made him an excellent choice for the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda, who on Saturday agreed to appoint him a Cultural Ambassador to country.
As a part of his ambassadorial duties, Ricardo would have the responsibility to advance Antigua and Barbuda in the Soca World and seek to promote the land of his birth as a cultural and tourist destination.
Ricardo who is no stranger to the role of Ambassador, as he is currently one of Digicel’s Brand Ambassadors, joins several others who have similar responsibilities and titles. Minister of Culture the Honourable Chet Greene has a long list of assignments for the young artist.
