Management Deny Disapproving Eko Atlantic Venue For Davido’s Show Based on Political Reasons, States Their Real Reasons


You would recall that we brought you news of Davido’s Eko Atlantic Concert venue disapproval in the very early hours of this morning. In the news, Davido reported that his concert, scheduled to hold on the 27th of December, 2018 at the exquisite city of the Eko Atlantic was not approved because of his political partisanship. He however said that he is looking for another venue that will soon be announced.
Well, the management of the Eko Atlantic City has quickly come out to respond to the allegation through a press release to debunk the rumours spread by the music superstar that the reason for the disapproval is politically motivated.
Davido shared a soft copy of the press release from the management via his twitter page.
“So my show this December at eko Atlantic Was not approved … I wonder why ? Hmmm ANYWAYS ANNOUNCING A NEW VENUE SOON!! ITS A DIRTY GAME BUT I CANT BE STOPPED!! ”“Nah the highest dem fit do be that ! I I WILL SUPPORT WHO I WANT TO SUPPORT AND WILL NOT SWITCH SIDES OVER A F-CKING VENUE !! ITS F-CK EM! DEC 27TH CITY OF DAVID CONCERT STILL ON! ANNOUNCING VENUE SOON! LOVE YALL ”
SEE BELOW.
It has been brought to our attention that we have allegedly denied the musician Davido’s request to use Eko Atlantic City for his upcoming concert.
We received this request on November 8 to which we responded for clarification and details about the event on November 9. We are yet to receive the requested information so, the notion that we declined his request is false and to imply we are politically motivated is false.
Some of the additional information requested was pertaining to security provisions and Eko Atlantic City is not an event center and rather a city with existing residents and businesses.
In light of this, we have strict rules and regulations when it comes to events and activities within the city, which require due process.
Eko Atlantic City takes the safety and security of the visitors to the city very seriously. We expect the same safety and security measures from event organizers who hold events in Eko Atlantic City. Any event within the city requires a proper level of planning, safety, and security from event organizers.
As a final note, Davido and some upcoming artists shot a video in Eko Atlantic earlier this year, which we welcomed, as we believe in the development of our entertainment industry in Nigeria as seen on our social media pages.


Do you really think the venue could have been disapproved for political reasons and regarding the last paragraph on the press release “Davido and his upcoming artistes” who are they calling Davido’s Upcoming artist; Mayorkun, Dremo, Peruzzi?
