On Saturday’s Rocket Hour radio show, Elton spoke with Nakhane Toure.
The actor and musician talked about growing up as a black gay man in South Africa, saying “as much as our constitution in South Africa is really liberal, the real world is a different place sometimes. I’ve had to kick down some doors yeah.”
Nakhane also chatted about his musical influences, and how Marvin Gaye’s album Here, my Dear impacted him as a child. The two also recalled sitting on their bedroom floors as kids and listening to records.
