•Governor Wike, Burna Boy and Tacha 

2019 Big Brother Naija (BBN) housemate, Anita Natacha Akide, popularly known as Tacha or Simply Tacha, is not taking it easy with all the critics of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State for his generousity towards Grammy awards winner, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu popularly known Burna Boy.

The 25 years old Rivers State-born graduate from Ignatius Ajuru University of Education used unprintable words to describe all those who are against the benevolence of the governor.

Hear her: “You are mad, really mad for you to think that what Governor Wike did yesterday for Burna Boy is unnecessary. 

“Just because the governor gave money and landed property to Burna Boy and N10m each to the other entertainers you are talking rubbish. I mean, this is a Grammy winner we are talking about. 

“Burna Boy deserves much more than that. He deserves a public holiday to be declared to honour him. He deserves streets to be named after him, and a lot more,” she said.

Recall that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Saturday night bestowed the superstar musician who hails from the state with the title of the Distinguished Service Staff in Rivers State.

The title is the second-highest lawfully recognized honour in the state only shared with the deputy governor of a state.

The occasion was the Grand Homecoming Concert organised by the River State Government to celebrate Burna Boy’s recent Grammy win.

The 29-year-old singer, who was accompanied by his parents, was also gifted a plot of land in Old GRA, Port Harcourt and an undisclosed amount to build any edifice of his choice.

The governor also promised to give every other entertainer that performed at the concert the sum of N10 million each, a move that has been condemned by many Nigerians.

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

“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 N10million each,” the governor had said during the event.
