Nigerian singer and Grammy award-winning Burna Boy, did not receive N10 million from Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, his mother and manager has said.
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State had during a home-coming ceremony for Burna Boy, after his Grammy win, promised to give him land and money as an appreciation for winning the Grammy Awards.
He also promised to offer 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.
She said it would have been a travesty if any other state had hosted the singer before Rivers.
Said she: ”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.
”It is only a bastard, my people say, that refuses honour in his father’s house”.
