French President, Emmanuel Macron has posited that the Afro beat legend, late Fela Anikulapo Kuti and his two sons, Femi and Seun are more famous in France and Europe than in Nigeria.
He said this during his visit to African Shrine Tuesday night, adding, “I think very often when you speak of the African culture in Europe, those who succeeded in Europe and in France, which is different most of the times, are not dramatically very famous in Nigeria or in Africa.
“And there is a bias because you know people are absolutely not the same. 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 is very important for me first on a personal level, and that is why I want to say with a lot of humility that I recognise the importance of this place, I recognise the place of culture in this current environment,’’ he said.
