Cape Town - Well, well, well! Look who is in South Africa and even stopped by the Cape Town International Jazz Festival!

It’s Hollywood heartthrob, Idris Elba!

Festival director, Billy Domingo surprised everyone on Saturday when he brought Mr. Elba on stage.

Channel24 reported last month that Idris and Matthew McConaughey will begin filming their new movie in South Africa soon.  

The pair will star in the film adaption of the popular Stephen King novels, Dark Tower.

Another international star got on stage at the festival on Saturday night. US hip hop artist and actor Yasiin Bey, better known by his former stage name, Mos Def, surprised everyone with his attendance.

We couldn't help but cringe at the awkward moment when someone in the crowd screamed; "Hey! Where's your passport!" Awks!
