Guess who’s back in town? Idris Elba returns to our shores on November 10 to tour Cape Town, Durban and Joburg as part of an Oude Meester Brandy tour.

Joining him as co-ambassador is actor and comedian Siyabonga Radebe.

The tour seeks to showcase and celebrate the talent, skill and innovative spirit of South Africa’s aspiring creative entrepreneurs; and will include Q&A sessions as well as tap into the actor’s talents in music, film, technology, and his inspirational story.

Elba recently recorded a new album inspired by his time shooting Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, where he played Nelson Mandela.

Mi Mandela features British and South African artists, and is set for a November release.
