Eko Atlantic City’s Response to Davido’s Allegations

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.

Davido's Chioma tests positive to coronavirus

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.

  1. Davido should go and reconcile with them and make proper arrangements for his concert, it’s good to put security into consideration first. It’s not a big deal.

  2. I said it earlier that I won’t say a word until I hear I hear from them at Atlantic city…. Davido come and clear this o

  3. I think this is a case of neglect . He can still holds meeting with them and continue with the Eko hotel or better still look for a new venue

  4. If it’s politically motivated, would you people to own up to that? Whatever. Whether it’s politically motivated or not, you can’t stop the event from taking place. The only thing is that it won’t hold in your centre’s.

  5. He might be denied indirectly,
    Hence should go and reconcile with Eko Atlantic, if he really want to make use of the place.

  6. Now that they declined that they didn’t stop you that you only need to follow their protocol ,rule and regulations then I thing you need to respect that and do the needful

  7. This is our son that holds an events across the states of America and many countries without complaining about the funds for security. If it not politically motivated why then do you think Davido cannot afford the security for just a night of show. He will get it better and lovely elsewhere
