WIN A DATE WITH IDRIS ELBA FOR VALENTINE’S DAY!
BY J.S. VON DACRE
Idris Elba is about to set hearts racing with hope, as he is auctioning himself off for a date on Valentine’s day for W.E. Can Lead, a charity that works to ensure that girls across Africa receive equal education and receive appropriate mentoring.
The lucky winner will join Elba for a candlelit dinner at one of his favourite restaurants, not to mention that flights and hotel will be covered. And according to the site, “You can talk about anything you want to: movies, music, your deepest desires. Idris is a great listener. He’s also a great talker. He’s pretty much great at everything.”
His tongue-in-cheek video has racked up views in no time, in which he said, “You can pound the yams. And you know what? I’ll let you pound my yams.”
Elba has recently become single since splitting up from Naiyana Garth, mother of his two-year-old son. To be in with a chance for, possibly the best Valentine’s day of your life, donations can be made for as little as $10, which will qualify you for 100 entries. So don’t worry if you find yourself single this year, because Idris Elba is ready to mingle!
