Burna Boy’s manager and his mother have revealed that the Grammy award winner did not receive the promised N10m from Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
during a homecoming ceremony for Burna Boy, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State had promised to gift him land and money after his Grammy win, as an appreciation for winning the Grammy Awards.
He also promised to gift other singers that performed that night N10m each
However speaking with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbing Minds, Bose Ogulu said “it was an honour for Burna boy to be hosted by the Rivers government but that he was not paid to perform.”
“The first thing about that event was that money was not paid. It was paid to everyone else but Burna. Everyone else who came to perform was paid, but him, because they were honouring him. He was not being paid to be there.”
She further stated, ”It is only a bastard, my people say, that refuses honour in his father’s house.”
