After a long time off-screen, Ibrahim Musa aka Ibro has returned to his first love – acting.
Musa explained that he has been busy with his Ibromusa Foundation traveling from one state to another taking care of indigent children – feeding, clothing, providing education materials, and taking care of their medical needs.
Already in the 36 states of the federation and in 19 African countries, Musa said he wouldn’t want any indigent child to go through what he went through when he lost his parents which made him sleep under the bridge, in uncompleted buildings before providence smiled on him and he became an actor.
As a result of his passion, Ibro says he spends about 40 percent of his income on his philanthropic projects and hopes to own a vocational training centre and be able to offer free education to vulnerable children soon.
“Because of this project, I almost lost my life in an accident. I was in the hospital for a year and four months. And while I was there, I got an invitation to an international conference in the United States of America. To our credit, we got an international award in Dubai in 2019 and now again, we have been nominated for another one.”
However, the diminutive actor is pleading passionately for good-spirited individuals and corporate bodies, and organisations to support his dream to reach millions of children across Africa.
