It is no longer news that French President Emmanuel Macron will be visiting Lagos Nigeria today,

Lagosians have been filled with excitement on learning that the 39 year old president will not only be available to commission the new Alliance Francaise in Victoria Island, but will also pay a visit to the famous Afrika Shrine located in Alausa Ikeja later in the day. Macron will make history as the first ‘real President’ to visit the shrine.

This move will further strengthen the cultural ties between France and Nigeria. The French President is billed to also meet with top Nollywood stars and entertainers at the event, which will be hosted by Banky W, and has a fashion show and music concerts among the activities lined up to entertain Macron today.

Do you think Macron’s visit to Fela Shrine is significant?
