French President Emmanuel Macron could not hide his feelings as he concluded his state visit to Nigeria with a night out at the Afrika shrine in Lagos.
“This is African energy. The one I discovered here in Lagos when I was 23. The one I am glad to see is still thriving several years later. The one I hope many Europeans will get to know. The one that is far from the African prejudice of misery,” he tweeted on Wednesday.
Macron was very touched after an 11-year-old boy made a drawing of him right there in his presence. Kazeem Olamileka took two hours to produce an image of the French president.
In a video shared by Macron himself, he is seen hugging and praising Kazeem for his talent.
“Very touched, congratulations to this young boy!” Macron tweeted as he shared a video.
