Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State Southern Nigeria has pledged N10 million to Grammy award-winning artiste, Damini Ogulu (Burna Boy) and all other artistes that performed at his homecoming concert on Saturday.
Burna Boy who is of Rivers descent won the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category at the 2021 Grammy Awards for ‘Twice As Tall‘.
Speaking at Burna Boy’s homecoming concert, Wike, in a viral video, applauded all the artistes that performed and noted that he is proud of them.
In his words: “Those of you who have come to play, whatever you have agreed with the ministry of culture and tourism is not my business.
“All of you that have come today and the Niger Delta people that have come to play today to show the talent you have, I’m very proud of you. All of you will go home with N10million each.”
