French President Emmanuel Macron first visited the Afrika shrine in Lagos as a 23 year old when he was interning in the French Embassy in Abuja, Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory. He says that back then he never imagined he'd come back to it as the President of France. CNBC Africa's Damilola Ade-Odiachi brings us this report.
President Macron made an iconic stop at the Afrika Shrine; a nightclub founded by legendary Nigerian Afrobeat star Fela Kuti, where he announced the planned launch of the "Season of African cultures 2020". The event is intended to be the face of African culture in Europe. When asked about previous visits to the legendary Lagos club, Macron said: “I can’t tell you everything that happened when I used to come to the Shrine because what happens at the Shrine stays at the Shrine.”
