“I want to say thank you so much this is an amazing honor. I never thought I’d ever hold one of these,” Idris said during his speech (via The Telegraph) “I think the spirit of Mobo is about growing and if I was just a musician then I wouldn’t get one of these but if I am someone that believes in life expanding your horizons, just like Mobo is doing, and trying to inspire others to do the same then this is a very special award for me and I’m very thankful for it.”

FYI: Idris is wearing Burberry.
