After publicly supporting PDP, APC fires back as Davido fails to get approval for his concert venue at Eko Atlantic

Music star Davido, has revealed that he was denied approval of the Eko Atlantic venue for his December concert.

The singer made this known on his Twitter page adding that “it’s a dirty game but I can’t be stopped.”


The outspoken music star also said the concert will still hold, as he promised to announce a venue soon.

The tweets read;

“So my show this December at Eko Atlantic was not approved … I wonder why ? Hmmm anyways announcing a new venue soon, it is a dirty game but I can’t be stopped”.

“Nah the highest dem fit do be that I will support who I want to support and will not switch sides over a venue”.

Meanwhile, the concert held at the same venue last year December.

Davido had campaigned passionately for his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke during the Osun State governorship elections in September.

The star had also lambasted the All Progressive Congress, claiming they rigged the election in favour of Gboyega Oyetola.

However, the management of Eko Atlantic has responded to th allegations made by Davido over the use of the city as a venue for his upcoming music concert.

Eko Atlantic in an official statement said the notion that his request was denied is false and to imply they are politically motivated is also false.

The management claimed that they had asked for clarification and details about his upcoming event but are yet to receive any feedback.

The statement reads;

“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 centre 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.”
