Hon. Desmond Elliot, is one of the people who are excited about the recent visit of France President, Emmanuel Macron, to the New Afrika Shrine.

Despite being tagged as destructive by many people, Macron insisted that he would like to be hosted there.

Speaking with Goldmynetv, Elliot, who was also available to welcome Macron at the New Afrika Shrine, insisted that the France President came to the Shrine to know more about Africa and where Afrobeat originated from.

He stated,

“The France President wanted to know things about Africa and everyone around the globe knew the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, the originator of Afrobeat. For you to know Africa, Macron knew he needed to come to the Shrine and there was no better place to host him than the place he could see Africa at its best.

“The entertainment industry is proud and this has raised the bar for the industry. It is huge for a sitting president of a European country to visit the Shrine and he enjoyed everything about Africa. I am a strong supporter of African culture and I love everything African. I want to encourage other states that whenever they have an important dignitary, they should take them to see their culture.”

Also, the actor said, though Nollywood did a skit to welcome Macron, the visit was beyond the movie industry.

“Nollywood did a skit. but the importance of the visit goes beyond the movie industry. It was a plus for the entertainment and tourism industries. You know one of the ways we can export our culture is through entertainment,” Elliot stated.

    very disappointing to read this from someone like Eliot. shamefull indeed. shows how backward even supper stars like him in Nigeria are. Macron came to Nigeria for just one purpose, persuade Buhari to allow him send French troops through the Nigerian border to fight Southern Cameroons. To thank buhari for allowing him to Enter into Nigeria to arrest Southern Cameroonian leaders who were having a meeting in Nera Hotel in Abuja. and finally to thank him for constantly opening his borders for paul biya’s terrorist forces to cross into Nigeria and kill Nigerian citizens on the pretext of chasing Southern Cameroons.
    Shame to Africa, that a 40 year old boy will be fucking the Ass of Buhar and all of Nigeria enjoys it and claps. On which planet did god create Africans Race?. shamefull that we are celebrating this imbecile who consider us as sub-human. our land is only as good as their farm to come and collect minerals. we are no human so, they must provide the guns and kill us at will. shame. when has A Nigerian president visited France and taken to their secret cultural places?
    African leaders are fake, stupid and sub-human. shame to Africa, Shame to my Nigeria. who is Macron to call for the attention of all Nigerians. what an insult to Nigeria, instead of watering the idiot with Puu, Tomatoes and Urine, fake celebrities like eliot and Genny where scrambling to shake the hands of a young murderer who is financing the killings of 1000s of our brothers next door in Southern Cameroons. wow. shame shame shame!!!!!
