From His Body To His Roots…
Another connection to health extends outside of his body, but closer to his roots. Idris was raised in East London by his mother, who was from Ghana, and his father, who was from Sierra Leone. In a recent interview, the star admitted that he’s a little ashamed that he’s never visited either country.
“It’s embarrassing. I have to go. There are plans, serious plans! I can’t wait.”
Among those plans include partnering with his cousin, who is a nurse, and opening a healthcare facility for sick families in Sierra Leone, the country where his parents met. He’s excited about the opportunity to give back and work with family at the same time.
