The music star arrived at Port Harcourt airport on Saturday, March 27, 2021, in the company of his crew.
On hand to receive the music star, were his fans and a mammoth crowd of supporters from the state.
He was accompanied to the Government House where he was received by the state governor, Nyesom Wike.
The singer thanked the governor for the honour bestowed on him.
According to him, it was one thing to be recognised outside the country and it is another when you get recognised by your people at home.
In his response, the governor thanked the singer for making the state proud.
“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,” he said.
The event at the Government House was followed by photo ops.
The music star was accompanied to Rivers state by his mother, Bose Ogulu.
