Paying for healthcare is something I'd had no experience of until my recent trip to South Africa. I became unwell and needed to see a doctor, and whilst as a tourist I had travel insurance, the process meant that I still came face-to-face with the reality of paying for healthcare.

I set my bag down on a chair in the airport café, sensing someone's eyes on me. I looked up and straight into the watchful gaze of a man seated on the far side of the cafe, talking into his mobile phone in an accent it was hard to make out.

I have always worked at something I love, however this is different, as this is working for myself and with my best friend - and backing our beliefs and visions, not someone else's. It brings an extra passion and commitment to the process and, ultimately, a more fulfilling reward.

The Album: A Tribute to Mi Mandela, Winston Elba and South Africa

Idris Elba | Posted 24.01.2015 | UK Entertainment
Idris Elba

Before my dad passed away, I had the chance to show him the film and explain that he was the biggest influence in the moulding of the older Mandela. I moulded how Mandela moved on my old man, they have very similar traits. Tree is the most personal song on this album for me. After spending three weeks in the studio, I knew it was time to write a song that addressed his passing. The perspective is like, "He's gone, man. I wish I could say this to him." And that's how the first lyric came; it was really sort of a love letter to him.

The Idea

Idris Elba | Posted 02.01.2015 | UK Entertainment
Idris Elba

If I'm honest, the idea of making this album was an afterthought. I spent eight months working on Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Mandela was really into his music and part of my research was to understand what he liked. What I probably didn't realise at the time was just how much there was to discover. In the course of that journey, I felt like I discovered the roots of South African music. And there was so much to discover! South Africa has over 60 different tribes, and each has its own style of musical expression and its own unique style.
