Rabilu Musa (Dan Ibro) the Popular Hausa Actor is Dead. Known all over the Hausa Film industry, the ace comedian was one of the shining stars of Kannywood with some cross overs into Nollywood.
Though details of how he died were sketchy at the time of this report, Ibro was in his lifetime a recognised personality in the Kannywood comedy scene. Kannywood is the general unofficial name for the Hausa film industry.
Harassed and jailed several times by the Kano State Government under the ex-Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, for acting in movies believed to be violating the censorship rules in Kano, Dan Ibro went on an acting hiatus. Only recently did he resume his acting activities possibly due to a relaxation of the censorship rules.
