The encounter happened on Monday at the Cricket World Cup in England. Estwick was there in his capacity as assistant coach for the West Indies team, who unfortunately lost to Sri Lanka (338/6) by 23 runs. But despite the defeat, Rihanna remained positive and in high spirits.
Speaking with Barbados Today about her former teacher; “I love this man,” she said “I came here to see the match and was cheering West Indies to a victory. They played great but we just didn’t make it. But I also wanted to see Mr. Estwick. He made a lasting impact on my life and he really offered great advice to me and many others when we were at school at Combermere. I just wanted to let everyone know what he meant to me in my development and what he did for us back at school in Barbados.”
Rihanna also shared the moment on her Instagram page, via instastories she uploaded a photo of her and Estwick with the caption: “My mentor, my champ, my MVP, my school teacher, my first Jay Brown. You made my day!”
