Wike hosts Burna Boy, says he is pride of Rivers


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo on Saturday hosted Nigeria’s Grammy award winning Afrobeat artist, Burna Boy, describing him as pride of the State.

Wike made this assertion when Burna Boy, whose real name is Damini Ogulu, his parents and management team paid him a courtesy call at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Saturday.

The governor said the state was proud of Burna Boy for the rare distinction of becoming a winner of the prestigious Grammy award.

“There is no Rivers person that will say he or she is not happy with the kind of pride you’ve brought us. I am very happy and I can tell you, whatever you think we can do to promote you, we will continue to do it.”
