Tacha defends Gov Wike’s N10 million gift to BurnaBoy

Former housemate on Big Brother Naija, Tacha has defended the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike’s decision to gift Grammy winner, Burna Boy, with a N10M cash gift.

The governor gifted Burna Boy with the cash during an event to welcome him back home after winning at the Grammys on Saturday, March 28, 2021.

In a video shared via her Instagram page on Sunday, March 28, the reality TV star said BurnaBoy even deserved a public holiday in his honor for his achievement.

“You are mad, you are legit mad to think what Governor Wike did for Burna Boy yesterday was unnecessary. Y’all don’t know my state you all don’t freaking know my state. The nightlife is completely dead. For him to be like Burna come down lemme give you 10 million naira and you people are thinking that it is too much? You are crazy,” she said.

“Burna Boy should have the whole town he won a Grammy o, not some plastic award. He won a whole Grammy, that’s what Burna Boy won. He should even have a public holiday dedicated to him. Meanwhile, you are all here crying and lamenting. You are mad! You are all mad.”

Tacha’s video came barely 24 hours after Gov Wike announced in another viral video that he was gifting Burna Boy N10million alongside other musicians who performed at a homecoming party in Port Harcourt organised in his honour by Rivers State Governor.

Other reports also claimed the musician was also given a plot of land in the GRA of Port Harcourt to build for himself a home.

Gov Wike faced heavy criticism from those who argued giving an already wealthy artist N10 million amounted to a waste of government resources.
