The “Beasts of No Nation” actor turns 47 today, according to online encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

And to celebrate him, Sarkodie dropped some rare photos of them on his Instagram page on Friday, September 6.

According to the “Adonai” hitmaker, Idris is his ‘true brother’.

He shared three new photos taken at one location while seemingly sharing pleasantries.

He captioned: “Happy birthday @idriselba ... True brother.”

Aside from the elegance and high fashion sense displayed in the photos, the post points to one thing; their forthcoming collaboration.

Fans have anticipated this collaboration since Sarkodie announced that he will feature Idris on his upcoming album, titled “Black Love”.

Sarkodie has released two songs off the album; “Lucky” featuring Rudeboy and “Do You” featuring Mr Eazi.

He is yet to announce the album release date and Idris Elba’s collaboration.
