Burna Boy’s manager and mother, Bose Ogulu has stated the Grammy award winner did not receive N10m from Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

 

Sneh Tv recalls that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State had during a homecoming ceremony for Burna Boy, after his Grammy win, promised to gift him land and money 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 noted that 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 sham if any other state had hosted the singer before Rivers

 

”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.”

 

Burna Boy won his first-ever prestigious Grammy award at the 63rd Grammy Award ceremony.

 

The African Giant was nominated in the category for the Best Global Music Album category for his album Twice As Tall.

 

The singer, who is a nominee for a second consecutive year, beat four others including the Malian band, Tinariwen to clinch the award.
