Ghanaian Hollywood Star Idris Elba Making It Big

Just last week, we threw light on Idris Elba, noting his mixed Ghanaian and Sierra Leonean parentage. No doubt the east London born is doing great in Hollywood with his career as an actor.

His success and acting skills could be seen in America Gangsta where he acted alongside Denzel Washington, Obsessed- alongside Beyonce Knowles and others.

It is good to keep to one’s childhood dreams but then when age sets in, such dreams should be let to go with time if they do not befit that individual any more. Idris Elba is known for his love for music, but man is going fast to 40 years.

Check out what he just did few months ago. I couldn’t help but to open my mouth when I came across it on youtube. What “kinda” old grown up successful man will be doing this music?

The music is far from good and to mess it all, he seems to be throwing away his all African background in favour of some fake Jamaican “patoi” language. Come on Idris!, leave the music for the R Kellys and the Sizzillas. What is all this with some Africans trying too hard to be Jamaicans?
