Burna Boy’s mother clarifies on alleged Gov Wike’s money gift to son
The mother of singer Burna Boy, who also acts as his manager have revealed that the Grammy award winner did not receive N10m from Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Recall that Wike had announced that he will be giving a plot of land and cash to Burna Boy as an appreciation for winning the Grammy Awards.
Wike described the Grammy award-winning Afrobeat singer, as the pride of the state.
The Governor stated this welcoming Burna Boy and his parents on a courtesy visit at the Government House, Port Harcourt.
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.
She said it would have been a travesty 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.”
