The award, Distinguished Service Star of Rivers State, is conferred on individuals in recognition of their exceptional service/performance in any field of human endeavor. According to Governor Wike, the honor was aimed at appreciating indigenes of the state who show outstanding talent with their works and stand out head and shoulders above others, in Burna’s case, his win at the 63rd Grammy Awards.
