Wike gets criticised for gifting artistes at Burna Boy’s homecoming party N10m each despite owing salaries
Burna Boy made history on Sunday, March, 14 when he won his first-ever Grammy award. His ‘Twice As Tall’ 2020 album won the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category in the 63rd Grammy Awards.
The homecoming concert was reportedly organised by the Rivers state government to honour him over the global achievement.
According to BBC Pidgin, other artistes who performed alongside the Grammy-winning singer at the concert which took place at EUI Event Centre, Sani Abacha Road GRA, Port Harcourt, include Duncan Mighty, Timaya, Omah Lay, and Nissi.
The footage where the Rivers state governor made the promise has gone viral on social media as many Nigerians criticise him and wonder why the governor would be spending such a huge amount on the musicians while he allegedly owes teachers’ salaries.
It was also gathered that Governor Wike gifted the Grammy-winning artiste a piece of land and money to develop it.
