British Actor, DJ, and producer Idris Elba has a lot going on these days. Though newly engaged to his girlfriend and beauty Queen Sabrina Dhowre, wedding plans and acting won’t stop the music. Elba is slated to DJ at the Forbidden Fruit Festival in Dublin, Ireland this coming June!
Unbeknownst to many, Idris is not one of those celebrities turned DJs. He actually started DJ-ing at the age of 14. When asked about DJ’ing, he says “I started when I was 14, and I had two years in my life when DJ’ing is all I did.”
Elba takes his craft seriously. “I don’t imagine that I’m gonna be at the height of Calvin Harris or anything like that. But I would like to be known as a f*cking good DJ that comes and kills it across festivals and smaller rooms.” It looks like he’s about to kill his Forbidden Fruit Festival performance!
