The Nigerian musician and pioneer of Afrobeats, Fela Kuti, constructed a shrine for himself he held performances and recorded music.

Due to Fela’s political involvement in the 1970s, the military government had this shrine, now known as the “Old Afrika Shrine,” demolished.

Then he relocated to Mushin’s Hotel, also known as the Kalakuta Republic or the Afrika Shrine. As a result of repeated government raids, this was completely destroyed in 1977.

In honour of Fela’s passing, his son Femi Kuti erected a new Afrika Shrine in October 2000. Since then, it has become into a popular tourist destination for aficionados of Afrobeats worldwide.

The new shrine, which is located in the Alausa environment of Ikeja, Lagos State, houses some of the best art and musical performances in Lagos. It has become like for Afro-beat lovers and has also served as a great location for emerging artists to shoot their videos and host their shows.
