Quincy Jones introduces Hollywood to Nelson Mandela’s daughter Zindzi at “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” premiere

Nelson Mandela’s daughter Zindzi paid a fine compliment to “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” star Idris Elba, who plays her father, as she took the microphone to open the Los Angeles premiere of the biopic on Monday night.

“[He’s] a man whom I don’t mind calling ‘big daddy’ anytime,” she said, drawing a big laugh from the crowd in the Arclight dome.
