Afrobeat singer, Femi Kuti says his discussions with President Emmanuel Macron were short but insightful.
Femi, who’s the first son of Fela Kuti, and his sister Yeni Kuti, welcomed Macron alongside Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and a host of celebrities at the Afrika Shrine on Tuesday for the inauguration of African Cultural season which will be hosted in France in 2020.
“The discussions I had with President Macron were short but straight to the point about the migrant crises and how to solve them. Most importantly the importance of the future of the youths, which we both agreed on. And his love for the Shrine,” Femi said in a post on Instagram.
The 56-year-old musician went on to share series of pictures with Macron who was in Nigeria for a two-day official visit, adding that the French politician, 40, showed his people love during the visit and he’s “concerned and wants positive change too.” Award-winning African music stars including Benin’s Angelique Kidjo, Senegal’s Youssou N’Dour, and Nigeria’s Asa were also in attendance as Femi Kuti thrilled the audience at Shrine with an afro ballistic performance.
