Idris Elba Joins D'banj & Shadow Boxxer In The Video For 'Confidential'

Nigerian superstar D'banj and Shadow Boxxer recruit actor Idris Elba for their black-and-white music video for "Confidential."


Idris Elba joins forces with Nigerian superstar D'banj and Shadow Boxxer in their latest music video for "Confidential." The British actor, credited as Driis, delivers a pretty impressive verse as he, D'banj and Shadow Boxxer brag about their top credentials, hotel suites and conquests over a stuttering beat and pop synthesizers. The black-and-white visuals for the single, directed by Thomas Ikimi, follow in the same vein as the crew woo a rotating cast of girls in front of the cameras. This isn't Elba's first excursion into the music world. Last year, he released the Mandela-inspired mi Mandela album — which featured collaborations with Aero ManyeloMumford & Sons, James Blake, Cody Chestnutt, and several others — and he dropped "Selfie" alongside hiplife pioneer Reggie Rockstone, Phyno, and VIP. Watch D'banj, Idris Elba and Shadow Boxxer's video for "Confidential" below.
