Organisers of DMW act Mayorkun's Ibadan concert refuted speculations of any violence at the event, claiming security at the venue was top-notch.
There were speculations on Monday that the concert which featured artistes like Perruzzi and DMW boss Davido recorded incidents of violence from Davido's crew.
BZBD gathered that the production team are not aware of any violent attack at the event venue.
“The Mayorkun’s Concert, which was widely acclaimed by attendees as the best music concert to be held in the city of Ibadan was very well managed with experienced security officials in place, despite the over 13,000 people in attendance. So, we will like to disassociate ourselves from news going round of violence against some persons as no such thing happened at the event. It was a free and fair event," the team member said.
“While trying to encourage safe sex among youths, the organizers, with the support of relevant organizations distributed packs of condoms freely for reproductive and family health awareness which is typical of events of this magnitude. These were seen littering the event ground afterwards,” the member added.
The organisers also debunked online reports that people especially journalists were being maltreated by security officials.
"Adequate securities were made for all media houses and journalists with access tags at the event, and no violence was experienced by any journalist or pressman at the event.
The ‘all access’ tags were given only to authorized journalists and photographers. This is part of the security procedures that were put in place to prevent unauthorized access by impostors," the organisers explained.
"Although there were false reports by some blogs that alleged that a reporter was manhandled by security operatives. The reporter who was allegedly drunk attempted to forcibly gain entrance into the artistes’ green room without authorized access and was prevented by security operatives. The report by the aggrieved reporter is a calculated attempt to bring the event into disrepute. This isolated event is not representative of the concert event which otherwise was very peaceful and violence free,” they concluded.
