BRITISH ACTOR and rapper Ashley Thomas has been making great waves since leaving his London hometown and moving to America.
The 31-year-old, also known by his rapping moniker Bashy, landed a lead role in a reboot of hit action series, 24, alongside Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins.
And yesterday (Dec 13), he announced he had been invited to The White House by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for the annual Holiday Reception.
“Today,” the actor wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of the invitation.
In September, Ashley posted a picture of himself in his new Stateside loft apartment and wrote: “I always wanted to live in a loft apartment, ever since I watched Boomerang lol, it was actually a very big personal dream and mission of mine. Wanted a spiral staircase, open plan vibe – Mission Complete.
“I don’t have much and still remember when I was living in my overdraft driving a bus, so I really appreciate reaching my personal goals when I do.
“Universe please bless the new home with positive vibrations.”
