Idris Elba plans to open a film studio in Tanzania


February 1, 2023

British Actor Idris Elba plans to open a film studio in Tanzania, after holding initial talks with President Samia Suluhu Hassan, according to a presidential aide.

The actor met President Samia on the side-lines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, earlier this month.

According to the director of presidential communications, the talks are in the initial stage, but if everything goes well, then the studio will benefit not only Tanzania but east and central Africa. Since coming to power, President Samia has embarked on a series of reforms in foreign policy, business, trade and investment.
