The event was held to showcase and celebrate African culture and was hosted by Nigerian Artist and performer Banky W and Kenturah King.
One of the major highlights of the event was the interactive session between the French President and Mo Abudu, the African Queen of television and the CEO of EbonyLife TV.
During the session, Abudu pointed out to Macron that it would be great to see a Nollywood film win Palme d’or, the highest award given at the Cannes Film Festival. She then asked how the French President could help in making that request come into fruition. Macron responded by asking one of his aides to answer the question. Together, the French President and his aide affirmed that, with hard work and patience, a Nollywood movie could have the chance of clinching the award.
