Following Davido’s revelation that he was denied approval to use Eko Atlantic as his December 27th concert venue, Sirkenayo has dug deeper to reveal why he was banned from using the venue.
Davido took to Twitter this morning to rant about it. He tweeted
SO MY SHOW THIS DECEMBER AT EKO ATLANTIC WAS NOT APPROVED … I WONDER WHY ? HMMM ANYWAYS ANNOUNCING A NEW VENUE SOON!! ITS A DIRTY GAME BUT I CANT BE STOPPED!!
I I WILL SUPPORT WHO I WANT TO SUPPORT AND WILL NOT SWITCH SIDES OVER A F-CKING VENUE !! ITS F-CK EM!
Eko Atlantic is a planned city of Lagos State, Nigeria, being constructed on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean.
The location is becoming a favorite venue for musical concerts. This December, Wizkid is holding a concert at the same venue .
In 2017,Davido was invited to perform at the Eko Atlantic Festival ,put together by Lagos state government.
However, Davido’s inability to get approval, may not be unconnected with his support for his uncle, and PDP gubernatorial candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke.
When Adeleke lost, Davido openly chastised the APC led government, accusing them of rigging the election.
The APC even mocked Davido by inviting him to perform at the inauguration ceremony of the new governor who beat his uncle at the elections.
Weeks later, Davido and his girlfriend, Chioma paid a visit to PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
This obviously did not sit well with the APC-led government,hence decision to deny him access to the venue. All approvals for concerts at the Eko Atlantic goes through the Lagos state government,which is an APC led government.
This may just be the beginning of his woes as it is now obvious there is a silent battle between the APC and Davido.
