The New Afrika Shrine showcases photo galleries of Fela and music performances by Femi Kuti and Seun Kuti thus making it a tourist attraction.
Only July 3, 2018, French President Emmanuel Macron visited the Shrine and pre-launched the Season of African Cultures 2020 in France. Macron said he had visited the Shrine as a student in 2002.
I promise you from anywhere in the World getting to The New Afrika Shrine your spirit will be lifted ask President Emmanuel Macron. Our very own Star O.L.A has been inspired by Fela Anikulapo Kuti, on his experience at The New Afrika Shrine which has brought up this lovely rhythm and song he titled "The New Afrika Shrine"
