This past weekend, On the 27th of March, 2021, Rivers State as a whole and The Governor, Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike organized a Homecoming Concert to celebrate her most decorated Indigene Artiste, Damini Ogulu (Burna). The Burna Boy’s Home Coming Event was a successful one, filled with lots of excitement
Governor Wike felt Burna boy shouldn’t be the only one getting an early Christmas gift, he “promised” to reward fellow Port-Harcourt bred artistes who came out to show support and celebrate Burna Boy with the sum of N10 million each. In conclusion, Timaya, Ajebo Hustlers, and Duncan Mighty will be #10 million richer whenever they receive the money from the Rivers State government. Cheers to that.
