Femi Kuti, Afrobeat star and son of music legend, Fela Kuti, has admitted telling French President, Emmanuel Macron that his visit to the Africa Shrine was the reason the road leading to the Shrine was fixed and a generator provided.

The French President was formally received by President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, before he proceeded to the Shrine.
A viral Image on Instagram had revealed the details of the conversation between Femi and the French President. Femi Kuti disclosed that he told Macron that his visit led to the repair of the road leading to the shrine.
