Celebrated actor and musician Idris Elba recently stated his intention to both shoot a movie and establish a film studio right here in Ghana.

The versatile British icon made this known after paying a courtesy call to the President of the Republic of Ghana; H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Idris Elba is of both Ghanaian and also Sierra Leonean descent and has been doing his own bit to help the creative industry on the continent; having hinted he’ll set up a film studio in Tanzania as well.

What kind of movies, series and other visual content do you think we’d be producing out of the film studio, and do you think that will be the only project the Thor and Hobbs & Shaw star will be working on on our shores? Will you like to star in one of these features? Well, whatever the case, we here at BlacVolta fully support Idris Elba on this beautiful path!
