Film actor Idris Elba has arrived in his father’s native Sierra Leone for the first time, the government said, where he is due to receive citizenship and celebrate Christmas with the president.


The British-born star landed in the seaside capital Freetown to a small crowd on Wednesday. A government official who declined to be named gave this report.


Elba was born in London but his mother is from Ghana and his father from Sierra Leone, where he has expressed interest in investing in eco-tourism.


He is best known for his roles in Marvel franchise films such as “Thor” and “The Avengers”. Elba is also a successful rapper and DJ. People Magazine named him the “s*xiest man alive” in 2018.

Sierra Leone’s Deputy Tourism Minister William Robinson told AFP that Idris Elba planned to visit Sherbro Island — renowned for its pristine tropical beaches — and celebrate Christmas with President Julius Maada Bio.


The actor will receive a Sierra Leonean passport before Christmas, said a government official who asked to remain anonymous.


The impoverished West African country hopes to rekindle its tourism industry nearly two decades after the end of the civil war, which claimed some 120,000 lives.
