The 2019 Access Bank Lagos City Marathon (4th edition) scheduled for February 2 will have one of Nigeria’s biggest music stars, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, a.k.a D’banj, to entertain runners and fans at Eko Atlantic City.
The music star has been signed to thrill everyone who will be present at the finish point of the Marathon (Eko Atlantic City).
In a statement signed by Olukayode Thomas, head, communication and media showed that D’banj will perform alongside Teni who is hitting the wave and a host of other big stars.
However, Mr. Thomas would not admit or deny reports about other top artistes like Olamide, Burna Boy, Daivdo and Tiwa Savage being contacted to also perform.
He said “All I can tell the media now is that we have signed D’banj and Teni to entertain runners and marathon fans at the finish. I can also assure them that we are talking to many other artistes, but I cannot talk about artistes that we are yet to sign because it is unethical.”
Mr. Thomas also said that over 5,000 marathoners from about 45 countries have registered for the 2019 race.
According to him “Our target of about 150,000 runners participating in the 2019 race will be met. Since the work started, potential runners throng our office daily to request for form. We are also happy that thousands of foreign runners from different parts of the world have shown interest in this edition.
“Their coming will help the local business especially in the areas of hospitality, transportation and others.”
He also made a plea to ‘Lagosians’ to be pleasant and polite to the foreign tourists as their pleasant experience will make them want to re-visit Lagos.
