Nigerian singer Burna Boy has come under fire on Twitter after he allegedly received the N10 million gift Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike promised every artiste that performed at the singer’s homecoming concert.
Reports suggested that the ‘Twice As Tall’ singer was awarded a landed property at the Old GRA, Port Harcourt as well as money to construct a building.

Reacting to the development, one user wrote: “Lmao Burna boy will come on Twitter to drag politicians, he’ll call them looters and all but see the hypocrite hailing Wike after receiving N10M. Teachers are being owed 5 years salary in the same Rivers State o.”
Another user tweeted:
“When they say Buhari is not working. This is what they mean. They miss the government of share the money which is why @burnaboy could not politely ask Wike to use that money to pay the five-year unpaid salaries of teachers in demonstration schools in Rivers State.”

“Burna Boy and the rest of the artistes will collect N10M each from Wike and celebrate it here. Next day they will tweet about lack of infrastructure and focus on Lagos State. Have they ever ask Wike about End SARS Judicial Panel of Inquiry,” another user wrote.
