Macron: What happens in the shrine remains in the shrine

French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday night made the audience at Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s Afrika Shrine laugh, when he joked that ‘What happens in the shrine remains in the shrine’.

He was asked to relive some of his nostalgia of having been a patron of the Shrine when he worked in Nigeria at the French Embassy in 2004.

Some of the memories of his six months stay in Lagos he relived when he met President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, including remembering attending a concert by Femi Kuti, Fela’s first son,

But he was not ready to go down memory lane on Tuesday night and instead threw the humorous line at the audience.
