Though a famous actor, Ibrahim is acknowledged for his enviable love story with his actress wife. Here are some interesting facts to know about him.
Ibrahim Suleiman is 39 Years Old
Ibrahim Suleiman was born on September 25, 1983, and he is 39 years old. He was born in the northern part of Nigeria, precisely in Kaduna State, but originally hails from Edo State in the South-Southern part of Nigeria. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. Suleiman. There are no details about the occupation of his parents, and the names of his siblings remain unknown.
The details of the primary and secondary school Ibrahim Suleiman attended are unknown, but we know that he had bagged his Bachelor’s degree in Architecture at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

Is Ibrahim Suleiman a Muslim?
Ibrahim Suleiman sparked the public’s interest in his religion because he has a Hausa name but doesn’t embody stereotypical Hausa qualities. Anyways, the thespian confirmed in an interview that he was a practicing Christian. He went further to explain that his grandparents were Muslim, but it seems his parents decided to switch religions along the way.
Although Suleiman claims to be a Christian, it is clear that he doesn’t practice the religion to the tee. He recently admitted to cohabiting with his now wife, Linda Ejiofor, before they finally got married, a practice highly condemned in Christianity.
When asked why he did that even after claiming to be a Christian, Ibrahim answered that he and his wife were ambiverts and both needed to spend a lot of time with each other beforehand to familiarize themselves before finally making things official.
Ibrahim Suleiman Started his Career as a Dancer
Ibrahim started his career professionally as a dancer at eighteen while still at the University. Michael Jackson’s performance at the 1995 MTV Awards apparently had a significant influence on him as he subsequently made the decision to pursue a career in dancing.
His dance step has helped him win several dance competitions, including the first Malta Guinness Street Dance National Championship, which was won by his dance crew, “Soul Quest,” in 2008.
Ibrahim’s dance group belonged to the religious group Youths With A Purpose (YWAP), which entered the contest reluctantly and took first place, to everyone’s astonishment. They were given the opportunity to represent Nigeria in a few international tournaments due to their victory.
That was essentially his first exposure to show business, which finally gave him the platform to establish himself as a full-fledged ambassador for Malta Guinness. He was considered the most fashionable person for the “Man within the Box” category in the MTN SME campaign.
Ibrahim participated in the project by spending 87 consecutive hours in a hoarding box and promptly starting many speech communications on social media. Ibrahim Suleiman afterward pursued a career in acting, demonstrating his versatility as a member of the industry.
Before he started working in the Nollywood film industry, Suleiman danced professionally for 11 entire years. He also appeared in TV advertisements for brands such as Peak Milk and GTBank.
He is a charming, talented, gifted, creative, and highly skilled Nollywood actor who is well-known for accurately portraying film characters. Ibrahim is, without a doubt, one of the best in the business; he has a great sense of how to portray his role and can easily take on any role that Nigerian movie producers and filmmakers give him.
Ibrahim Made His Acting Debut on Tinsel
Ibrahim Suleiman danced for 11 years before he created a career in Nollywood. In the M-net series Tinsel, he received his first television role. He claimed in a question and answer session with Thisday magazine that he and his partner had been close friends for some time before getting his first acting job, a steady part on Tinsel.
He played a character named Damini. He continued by saying that Harry Dorgwu and Linda Ejiofor persuaded him to attend a reading. He acknowledged that Damini was the character most closely resembling his characteristics and expressed his astonishment at getting the Tinsel part. He also admitted that his Tinsel colleagues had provided him with a lot of assistance. He has a number of movies to his credit as of late, with notable actors including Linda Ejiofor, Rahama Sadau, and Nafessa.
Aside from playing in the multiple awards-winning TV series, Ibrahim’s roles in films like Up North, The Razz Guy, and Namaste Wahala earned him both a much-expected rise in the film industry and a jaw-dropping income that has equally helped to elevate his status to one of the richest young actors in the country.

Over time, they became best buds, a rather tricky situation that led to him almost being “friendzoned.” Eventually, Linda decided to give him a chance. They fixed secret hangouts and lunch dates. Their friendship blossomed into something really beautiful during the course of the show, and today, they are one of the few remaining couples who met on Tinsel and are still together.
Ibrahim appears to be madly in love with his wife. He is her biggest fan and calls her his “celebrity crush” and mentor.
