Endy Edeson Reports Live As French President Visits Fela Shrine Lagos

Hi guys, I am presently at The New Afrika Shrine (Fela Shrine) Ikeja Lagos State. French

President Emmanuel Macron is expected to arrive here any moment from now.
UPDATE: French President later arrived .
The security is very tight. I had to to introduce myself as an independent news blogger before they allowed me to take few photos. I am also threading with caution as there are heavily armed security
personnels all over the place.
President Macron is expected to open the magnificent Alliance Francais building, which is
located in Ikoyi on the next day after his visit to the Afrika Shrine. This scenic upgraded Chateau-style Alliance Francaise means more Nigerians can learn about French culture and language in Lagos, the commercial capital.

This is a welcome development which is bound to promote greater interaction between Nigeria
and France and expand business opportunities, cultural exchange and employment.

On his visit to the Africa Shrine, Macron is going to soak-in Afrobeat music, which was specially
created by the legendary Fela Ransome-Kuti, a radical artiste who fought against injustice and
executive recklessness through his addictive brand of music.

His sons, Femi and Seun have been able to sustain the popularity of the genre and President
Macron will certainly have fun at the African Shrine.

Endy Edeson

@Larahover; My dear sister, the whole of Agidingbe was cleaned up because of this visit. All shops and petty traders locked. It is like a public holiday around Aluasa, Agidingbe, Shoprite, Secretariat. @Daniel: PMB clearly stated that youths can now run but not for 2019 presidency . That would be in subsequent elections. I pray the youths take over just as it is being done in other parts of the world

In the words of the French President, '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.”
