Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has revealed that Rivers state government did not pay him for the homecoming concert held in the state.
He explained that only artistes invited to perform received the N10m.
It can be recalled that during the homecoming ceremony for Burna Boy, Wike promised to gift him a plot of land and N10m as appreciation for winning the Grammy Awards.
However, the artiste cleared the air while responding to a fan who tongue-lashed him for saying he does not make money from Nigeria.
The singer had tweeted; ”I’m from here and I live here because I love my home and my people, E no pass like that. I don’t make money from Nigeria. Na only cruise dey here.”
In response, the fan wrote; ”Thunder fire your lies, the one wey you make from Wike on your homecoming na wetin!!! Odogwu the biggest liar”
Burna Boy then clarified: ”Lol. I didn’t get a dime. Only the artists who honoured me by performing at my homecoming were paid. Get your facts right.”
