This scenic upgraded Chateau-style Alliance Francaise means more Nigerians can learn about French culture and language in Lagos, the commercial capital.

This is a welcome development which is bound to promote greater interaction between Nigeria and France and expand business opportunities, cultural exchange and employment.

On his visit to the Africa Shrine, Macron is going to soak-in Afrobeat music, which was specially created by the legendary Fela Ransome-Kuti, a radical artiste who fought against injustice and executive recklessness through his addictive brand of music.
