KanyiDaily recalls that Burna Boy won the Grammy Award for ‘Best Global Music Album’ with his 2020 project ‘Twice as Tall’, at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards held on Sunday, March 14, 2021.

On Saturday, March 27, Burna Boy staged a homecoming concert in Port Harcourt, which was reportedly organised by the Rivers state government to honour him over the global achievement.

Speaking during the concert, Governor Wike commended the artistes who graced the concert, promising to reward those who performed at the event as well as Burna Boy with N10m each.

“Those of you who have come to play, whatever you have agreed with the ministry of culture and tourism is not my business,” he said.

“All of you that have come today and the Niger Delta people that have come to play today to show the talent you have, I’m very proud of you. All of you will go home with N10 million each.”

Governor Wike gifted the Grammy-winning artiste a piece of land in old Government Residential Area (GRA) and money to build a home for himself.

Governor Wike’s pledge is coming at a time he is yet to resolve a lingering dispute over the non-payment of pensions and gratuity to thousands of retired Civil Servants since the inception of the administration in 2015.
