Idris Elba in South Africa - "I'm very proud of my African roots"

Today is a good day to be Idris Elba. But let's be honest, when you look that good, when is it not a good day to Idris Elba?

Not only was he most recently kicking it in South Africa recently but it just was announced today by People Magazine that he is the runner up for the title of the Sexiest Man Alive. Runner up though?!? He was robbed!

Idris was in South Africa recently for five days as part of the Oude Meester Tour. The 'Long Walk to Freedom' star was in Cape Town and Durban, before finishing up in Johannesburg. During his Q& A he spoke about his love for the continent and how proud he is to be African. Born to a Sierra Leonean father and a Ghanaian mother his roots run deep!

In other Idris new the 42 year old is adding another notch to his music career by releasing a Mandela tribue album and you can listen to the tracks here for free. According to Billboard:

The 11-track mi Mandela will come out on Elba's own 7wallace imprint in conjunction with Parlophone Records on Nov. 24, celebrating South African music with the help of South Africa and British collaborators including Mumford & Sonsand James Blake. The album's concept originates to the filming of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom in Johannesburg, South Africa, where Elba was inspired to continue making music. 

Hmmm no K.Michelle on the track? LOL, I know I am just being messy. I still cant get over the fact that they allegedly dated. Wozwers!

Check out the video recap below of Idris's time in Mzansi.
