Former Big Brother Naija Housemate, Tacha Akide has lambasted those criticising Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State Southern Nigeria for gifting N10 million and a plot of land to Grammy award-winning artiste, Damini Ogulu (Burna Boy).
ALEDEH News had reported that Wike made the promise on Saturday at Burna Boy’s homecoming concert.
He also promised N10 million each to all the artistes that performed at the event.
Wike’s gesture was greeted with mixed reactions, while some applauded his move others felt it was a misplaced priority and was unnecessary.
Reacting, Tacha justified wike’s action and argued that a town should also be named after Burna Boy in the State.
The ‘Pepper Dem’ housemate added a public holiday should be dedicated to celebrating Burna Boy’s heroics at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
“…to think what Governor Wike did for Burna Boy yesterday was unnecessary. Y’all don’t know my state you all don’t freaking know my state. The nightlife is completely dead. For him to be like Burna come down lemme give you 10 million naira and you people are thinking that it is too much? she queried.
“Burna Boy should have the whole town he won a Grammy o, not some plastic award. He won a whole Grammy, that’s what Burna Boy won. He should even have a public holiday dedicated to him. Meanwhile, you are all here crying and lamenting,” she added.
