Kevin and Nikita, 11/11/2017.

Barbadian singer, Nikita is possibly in for yet another name change as she said ‘I do’ yesterday at her wedding ceremony.

She was originally just Nikita, then Nikita Browne and Nikita Sings and she may or may not soon go by Nikita Herbert.

Tagged #Nikitasings2drherbs, Nikita and Kevin Herbert were joined in holy matrimony yesterday, Saturday, November 11, 2017.

Nikita’s Manager, Richard Haynes of South Central Entertainment told Loop News today:

“The wedding was awesome. It was definitely an amazing event full of all of the entertainers and the people that Nikita really, really, really likes, her family and friends and a lot of the entertainment fraternity. It was wonderful!

"I wish her nothing but the best and I think that she’s going to have a wonderful future, and we wish her nothing but blessings.”

Laughing he added that he also wishes her “lots and lots of kids and a wonderful family in the future! It was awesome. It was really lovely. It was a blessing to be there yesterday.”




The ceremony was held at the Church of Christ the King in Rock Dundo Gardens, St. Michael and for the reception, Petrea Gardens were transformed.

Yesterday before all the preparations and festivities got underway, Nikita posted one of her signature memes with the words ‘The best time for new beginnings is now…and so the adventure begins.’ The post caption read, ‘Embrace new beginnings #wisewords

On Instagram, as she got ready with her bridesmaids and Maid-of-Honour, she posted two Instagram boomerang videos with the caption “This is happening”. Then today she posted three photos from her big day saying “We did it! #hitched #nikitasings2drherbs”

Amongst the wedding guests were Rochelle Griffith of Classic Silhouettes, 2MileHill, Peter Ram, Ruel Ward and Shanta Prince and thousands have liked her Instagram posts and wished her ‘Congratulations!’

Nikita’s dress was made by Jaye Applewaite (Barbados). It had a plunging V-neck and an appliqué and mesh, sleeveless bodice. Her hair was in a low ponytail, which was tucked under and pinned up. Kevin wore a cream and black tux, with a crisp white inside shirt, black dress pants and a black bow tie.

And both the bride and groom wore matching smiles in every picture as they partied well into the night after their evening wedding.
