France President Macron to visit Fela’s Afrika Shrine today

Emmanuel Macron the French president will today (Tuesday) visit the popular Fela Afrika Shrine becoming the first real president to enter the place.
The New Afrika Shrine located in the teeming Lagos district of Ikeja replaced Fela Kuti’s original club that burnt down in 1977 but for millions of fans it still represents the original Shrine built by the musical maverick.

Olivier Laouchez, the head of the TRACE media and entertainment group and organiser of the event  said “The Shrine is a must- see place, Africa's cultural capital. The idea is to show the richness and diversity of African cultures, Europe does not know Africa or at least its cultural dimension. ”
