It's a very nice place to be. It's one of the freest place on earth. At the New Afrika Shrine, you're free to do whatever you wish to do as long as you aren't hurting anyone.

Name Shrine is misleading some tourist.
Feb 2019 • Business
I recently worked with few tourist from Finland on a brief week day visit to Nigeria. They were so excited when I mentioned the visit to the African shrine while we were at Fela museum though I explained the concept to them. A lot of them were disappointed when we got there. I asked for feed back and some said they imagined the place to be a voodoo shrine kind of place. While others said they were afraid of the high numbers of young men, smokers hanging around the place even without a musical show as I've explained before.

Homage to Fela!
Mar 2018
This was a must go for me on my second visit to Lagos, with only a few hours before leaving for Nairobi, I had to check in and drink me some palm wine. It seemed as if they were setting up for a performance but I had a flight early the next day I left at 10 pm. Fun fact that is the only place in Lagos you can smoke weed and not get arrested. I am so going back to expereince the music, next time.

Great atmosphere
Oct 2017 • Friends
I was with a band who were playing here as part of Felabration. The place is much bigger than I expected and has a great atmosphere. There were a lot of people smoking. The place got very full, there were thousands of people there but that was because it was a special night, the previous night I was there it was not nearly so full and was more chilled. The acoustics are not good which is a pity and when it gets packed it can feel a bit unsafe. Overall I would say that if you are going to be in this part of Lagos or indeed in Lagos at all, you must visit this place, it's an amazing experience.

An absolute must when visiting Lagos. Femi Kuti has a show on every Sunday and I was lucky to have also being able to see him perform with his son. What an amazing energy they have on stage.
Besides there being signs up that no drugs allowed there is a constant smell of weed but as long as you dont mind that its a great place to hang out.

If you don't mind the smell of people smoking weed, then you can spend a couple of hours here just chilling with friends.

The BEST attraction in Lagos!
Jul 2016 • Couples
This place is full of dancing, singing, food, drinks and Palm Wine (a local favorite). What I like best about the Shrine is the laid back environment. It is the only place in Lagos where people are really relaxed and carefree.

When you go to the Shrine be sure to bring your desire to have FUN! The place is not expensive and is open seven days a week. Any night is a good night. However, try and go when Fela's son plays. The live shows are supernatural almost a spiritual experience,

I go there at least two times a week when I am in Lagos, However, the best time to go is after 7 p.m.. And this place is really not expensive. Lagos is very very expensive but the Shrine is reasonable and is one of the BEST attractions in Lagos.
