Boxer Anthony Joshua visits Fela’s shrine in Lagos


Former world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua, who spent his early years living in Nigeria, has posted a video of himself visiting the famous Afrika Shrine club in the country’s commercial hub, Lagos.

The club was built by musician Femi Kuti and named after the venue run by his father Fela.

The British-Nigerian boxer has been sharing highlights of his visit to Nigeria, which appears to have begun at the start of this week, on Twitter.

On the video of his trip to the Shrine, which has been watched more than 250,000 times, he can be seen welcomed by fans.

Joshua uses the Femi Kuti song Fight To Win to accompany the images, which he describes as “powerful moments”
