On the flip side, Burna Boy has been a subject of severe criticism after Governor Nyesom Wike announced a 10 million naira cash gift for him in celebration of his Grammy Award.
Governor Wike’s show of “benevolence” to Burna Boy who is a critic of Nigerian Politicians has been tagged needless waste of public funds by critics on social media.
Wike gifting 10 million Naira to Burna boy who is already a millionaire is very wrong. Now safe me that defence that he could possibly do it from his personal pocket. Fuck it! We know our politicians. If at this stage we can't call black, black then we are deceiving ourselves.

It’s nice that Wike is giving out 10mil to artistes but my mother who worked for the state government for 35yrs retired with gratuity of app 9mil and has been told that the government can’t afford to pay them yet. But it’s okay he is giving 10mil to artistes.
