Lagosians have taken to social media to air their views on the rehabilitation of roads leading to the New Afrika Shrine, 24 hours before Emmanuel Macron, French president, visited the legacy building.
France's president on Tuesday visited a nightclub founded by legendary Nigerian Afrobeat star Fela Kuti which has a reputation as a hedonistic haven filled with frenetic music, scantily clad podium dancers and the stench of marijuana smoke. I know the place and I have some memories.
French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday arrived in Abuja for a meeting with his Nigerian counterpart Muhammadu Buhari, in his latest attempt to forge closer ties with English-speaking Africa. And I think very often when you speak of the African culture in Europe, those who are successful in Europe and in France, which is different most of the times are not dramatically very famous in Nigeria or in Africa.
The French president is also expected to inaugurate the headquarters of Alliance Francaise, a French Language and Cultural Centre in Ikoyi on July 4.
He visited Ghana a year ago and Nigeria - Africa's economic powerhouse and the continent's leading oil producer - was the next logical step.
The shrine contains a photo gallery of Fela and records regular stage performances by his sons, Femi Kuti and Seun Kuti.

Are you washing your hands all wrong? Study says yes

Tanauan Mayor shot dead
The police official said Halili was killed by a sniper. "We have an intelligence report that the mayor was involved in drugs". While the victim is not seen on camera after the shot is fired, the content of the video could be upsetting to some viewers.
"Africa needs a new generation of Africans to share the new narrative about Africa all over the world", he said.
According to him, politics is important because it is a tool to change the society.
Macron also announced the launch of the 2020 African cultures season in France.
Macron, who "confessed" that he was not a stranger to the club, said he recognised the Shrine as an important place for lovers of African culture.
NAN reports that the event presented an opportunity for Macron and Ambode to interact with musicians, artists, fashion designers and film makers.
