Contrary to the accusations made by star singer, Davido that Eko Atlantic City declined him his request to use the place for his concert because he’s supporting PDP, the management of Eko Atlantic City has now denied the allegation saying that it was a big lie for Davido to had implied that their decline was politically motivated.
The singer had earlier taken to his twitter handle to lament when he tweeted; “So my show this December at Eko Atlantic was not approved… I wonder why.”

However, managers of Eko Atlantic City in a statement disclosed that; “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.”
