Idris Elba tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Sabrina Dhowre, over the weekend in Marrakesh.
Elba personally requested performances from the Nigerian star and Tuareg desert rock guitarist.
Bombino’s manager Eric Herman revealed to OkayAfrica that prior to the wedding, the organizers never tipped them off as to who they couple were. All they knew is that they would be playing for a wealthy couple who they presumed was from the UK because the wedding planning company was London-based.
It wasn’t until Bombino and his band started playing that they discovered that it was Idris Elba’s wedding and that the actor had personally requested the Niger-born musician to play it.
Video is also making the rounds of Nigerian star Davido who reportedly was also requested by Elba to perform as a special surprise to his wife who loves his songs.
