French President, Emmanuel Macron has fulfilled his promise to visit the new Afrikan Shrine in Lagos. Last night, the 40 year-old French President was received by late Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s first son, Femi Kuti in company of Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
President Macron’s words:
‘I mean Fela, Femi, Seun Kuti are obviously very famous in France and Europe, I mean they are big successes but the Shrine is a cultural hub, an iconic hub and it is very important for me first on a personal level, and that is why I want 2 say with a lot of humility that I recognize the importance of this place, I recognize the place of culture in this current environment.”
