Nigerian popstar, Davido has informed fans that the venue he planned on using, Eko Atlantic, was not approved.
The singer, who supported PDP against APC in the Osun election, insisted that it was all politically motivated.
He, however, said the concert would hold and promised to announce a new venue.
According to him, ‘so my show this December at eko Atlantic Was not approved. I wonder why?’ He went on to say, ‘na the highest dem fit do be that. I will support who I want to support and not swicth sides for a fucking venue’.
Now,Eko Atlantic City has termed false, the claim by Davido, that the city refused to grant him approval to hold his upcoming concert in the city, due to his political affiliations.
Via their Twitter handle, @EkoAtlantic, the city revealed that they got Davido’s request last Thursday, after which, the asked him to provide clarification and details about the event.
Eko Atlantic added that they were yet to get a response to their request for details.
“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.”
He has also reacted to the statement of Eko Atlantic with a puke face emoji on his Twitter handle.
