Hollywood Actor Idris Elba to Host D'Banj's Koko Concert

Hollywood Actor Idris Elba to Host D'Banj's Koko Concert

Hollywood actor Idris Elba will host 'Koko Concert' in Nigeria on December 27. The Kokomaster himself D'Banj will honour the event despite his split with long-time producer Don Jazzy and company. The show will feature performances by D'Banj but scheduled performances by Big Sean, Pusha T, Kay Switch, and a host of other top acts are still unconfirmed.

Elba, an only child, was born Idrissa Akuna Elba. His father Winston is Sierra Leonean and worked at a Ford factory, and his mother, Eve, is Ghanaian and had a clerical job.

The two met in West Africa before moving to East London. Elba grew up in East Ham, and began helping an uncle with his wedding-DJ business in 1986, and within a year he had started his own DJ company with some of his best friends.

Elba left school in 1988 and won a place in the National Youth Music Theatre, thanks to a Prince's Trust grant, but later ended up having to do everything from tyre-fitting to cold-call advertising sales to pay the rent between roles in Crimewatch murder reconstructions.
