WATCH: Idris Elba Gets Dating Advice From Kids

This Valentine’s Day, one lucky fan and a friend will have the chance to go on a date with English actor and DJ Idris Elba! In collaboration with Omaze, the proceeds raised from the raffle will help support women in Africa through the W.E. Can Lead foundation.

To prepare for the date, Elba received advice from some small experts.

“To make sure our extraordinary night is perfect, I brought together a team of people who can help me think outside the box,” Idris said.

When he asked about what he should expect on a date, one kid said, “You pay for everything and you agree with everything she says.”

“What if I don’t like that?,” Idris asked. “It doesn’t matter about you, it matters about the girl!” a boy replied.
