Miniature in nature actor, Ibrahim Musa, fondly called Ibro, has denied the rumour going rounds that he's in competition with the pint-sized actors in Nollywood, Chinedu Ikhadieze and Osita Iheme a.k.a Aki and Pawpaw. 'There is no truth in the rumour, Aki and Pawpaw are friends and colleagues' he said.
Rivalry and undue competition is common among Nollywood practitioners, and it has sparked public face-off among many actors. But Ibro, who had been speculated to be competing with Aki and Pawpaw, says there is nothing like that.
According to Ibro, who recently landed a mouth-watering ambassadorial deal with an international outfit, Peace on Campus Initiative (PCI), “Aki and Pawpaw are my friends and colleagues, but it would be wrong for people to speculate that we are competing. Both of them are doing well, likewise myself, so there is basically no reason to compete. Besides, there is enough space for everybody to shine and make money without disturbing one another. The industry is very large for everybody and I’m enjoying it.”
Since Ibro was officially unveiled as the ambassador of the organisation under the chairmanship of Oliver Cowell, he and his entourage have been busy campaigning against social vices like cultism and prostitution among Nigerian youths.
Ibro, who is currently in the Eastern part of the country, is expected to cover all the geographical zones of the country before the train will move to foreign institutions, particularly in West Africa.
Asked if his acting career will not suffer due to his ambassadorial appointment, Ibro said “Not at all. As a matter of fact, I will be doing more movies that will tackle the negative effects of these social vices soon.”
