Davido,Atlantic City Battle Over Concert Venue Approval

Eko Atlantic City has denied Singer Davido’s allegation that  he was denied approval to use its facility for  his planned concert in the city because of his political leaning.

Reacting through its Twitter handle,the management of Eko Atlantic said it  got Davido’s request last Thursday, after which, he was asked  to provide clarification and details about the event.

, “Subsequently we are yet to receive the requested information so the notion we declined his request is false!

“Some of the additional information requested was pertaining to security provisions as Eko Atlantic 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.

“To imply, we are politically motivated cannot be further from the truth!

“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 organisers.

“As a final note, Davido and some of his upcoming artists shot a video in EkoAtlantic earlier this year which we welcomed as we believe in the development of our entertainment industry in Nigeria as seen on our social media.” the management reacted.

Davido has also reacted to the statement by Eko Atlantic with a puke face emoji on his Twitter handle.
