Media personality Larry Madowo couldn't contain his excitement after finally meeting award-winning actor Idris Elba.

The excitement was doubled after Elba identified Madowo, having seen him on TV before.

โ€œ'Iโ€™ve seen you on TV,' @idriselba told me and I was like 'so have I.' I wanted to congratulate him on all his success, and for using his voice to champion causes in Africa."
