Ibraah Age and Place of Birth
Ibrahim Abdallah Nampunga alias Ibraah is 22 years as of the year 2021. He was born on the 3rd of July 1998 at Tameke hospital, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
The songwriter is an alumnus of Lukokoda Primary School, located at Tandahimba, Mtwara. Ibraah joined Lukokoda from 2005 to 2011.
Before embarking on the singing career, Ibraah used to run small-scale businesses such as hawking for his source of livelihood. He started singing at the age of 8 when he was in standard two. He liked singing songs of other artists occasionally.
One day after school, he was walking to the market while singing songs of other artists as usual. He met his uncle Mabrouk Nyoya popularly known as Duke Boy. Duke boy heard him sing and spotted a big talent from Ibraah. The uncle later advised Ibraah that he could do so well if he could try to compose his own songs and he was ready to be the manager.
When Ibraah was through with his primary school education, he passed with flying colors but his parents could not afford to take him to the secondary school because they were committed to educating Ibraah’s brother, Idrissa Abdallah, and therefore they did not have enough funds to take Ibraah to school.
Lack of further schooling compelled Ibraah to struggle at a tender age in growing his talent. By good luck, he later managed to record several songs under the management of his uncle Duke Boy.
In the year 2015, Duke Boy vied for the sit as a member of parliament in Tandahimba Constituency. Ibraah got a chance to travel along with his uncle’s campaign troops whenever they went to.
In Mtwara, a singing competition was held where the winner could walk away with a smartphone and Tshs. 100,000. Ibraah was among the 36 youths who were contesting and emerged the winner of the competition. This gave him a chance to attend shows organized by well-established artists across East Africa.
