Pronunciation of actor Djimon Hounsou's name?

I love his characters in "Gladiator" "Blood Diamond" and "The Island" but I've never really known how to pronounce his name correctly. I end up just saying "that guy from Gladiator/Blood Diamond/The Island" whenever I'm trying to describe him. I've tried Googling it but so many different things come up that I'm not sure which one is right.
