The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, last night promised to give N10m each to Burna Boy and other artistes who performed at the Burna Boy Homecoming Concert in Port Harcourt.

The homecoming concert was organised by the Rivers State government in honour of one of their own Burna Boy, who recently won a Grammy award.

In a video going viral on social media, the Governor said, ”All of you that have come to today, the Rivers people and the Niger -Delta people that have come to perform, I am proud of you. All of you will go home with N10m each.”

However, the governor’s pledge was not welcomed by some Nigerians as they took to Twitter to slate him.

At the time of filing this report, the governor’s name Wike is trending at number one on the Nigerian Twitter space with over 12,700 tweets.
