Nigerian media personality, Anita Natacha Akide, known as Tacha has said that Grammy Award-winning artiste, Burna Boy deserves more than the N10 million he received from Governor Nyesom Wike.

She stated this in a viral video on Sunday while defending Rivers State Governor for inviting and honouring the artiste.

Recall that Burna Boy won the award for Best Global Music Album for his 2020 album Twice as Tall.

In the video, Tacha lambasted those questioning Governor Wike for gifting N10 million and a land. She said although the governor hasn’t done much for Rivers state, he is right to honour an indigene of the state.

According to her, Burna Boy should have a whole town named after him, and also a public holiday dedicated to the artiste.

Watch the video below



  1. With influencers like Tacha, Nigeria needs no enemies. I live some place in the West where many of their artists have won the Grammy. Apart from the media publishing it you hardly know anything happened; the people don’t go crazy. Why are we so bush in Africa. Wike has made it his government’s policy to waste Rivers money in pursuit of his vice presidential ambition.

  2. More than 10 million naira for doing what? Just take a trip to the hinterland of Rivers state and you will see what the staggering amount of 10 million naira could have done to many families languishing there. You are giving such an amount to someone who is singing for a living. You even opined naming a whole town after him. Rubbish. What a nonsense. Is he KEN SARO WIWA?
