The mother of Burna Boy, Bose Ogulu insisted that when he was honoured, the singer received no money from the government of the Rivers state.
Remember that after his victory at the 63rd Grammy Awards, Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor, honoured Burna Boy.
With his Twice As Tall album, Burna Boy won the Best Global Music Album category. He was supposedly gifted a piece of land and funding for building a house by Wike.
Bose Ogulu maintained that his son received no money when he attended the reception because some Nigerians called the singer to receive a gift like this.
She said that her son was honoured for what it accomplished and that it would have been irresponsible to deny this honour, according to the Mother Burna Boy’s recently interviewed Ebuka, Ebuka.
See the following video of the mother of Burna Boy:
