Linda Ejiofor’s Husband, Ibrahim Suleiman, Is Also A Popular Nigerian Actor 

We know that Linda made her acting debut as Bimpe Adekoya in the M-Net production Tinsel, which launched her career. But what about her husband? What do we know about him and how famous is he compared with his wife?

Ibrahim Suleiman is 40 years old, as he was born on September 25, 1983. Although he is from Edo State in the South-South region of Nigeria, he was born in the North, specifically Kaduna State. Ibrahim is a well-known and accomplished actor. He is also an architect, artist, author, choreographer, television host, and voice actor.

The good-looking, talented creative is renowned for his accurate portrayal of characters in movies. 

Linda and Ibrahim Suleiman’s Love Story was a Fairytale 

Ibrahim Suleiman and Linda Ejiofor’s love tale is quite endearing. They transitioned from on-screen lovers to off-screen partners and has managed to stand together for years now, making them a fan favorite among Nigerians. While filming the Africa Magic drama series Tinsel, in which they play Bimpe Adekoya and Damini White, the couple started dating. 

Ibrahim recalled how they met and how their romance began by saying that most of their scenes on the show were filmed together, and they had very similar schedules. So when they completed filming for the day, they would usually go to see a movie or go on a date. Secretly, the two of them had a lot of secret lunch dates that even their colleagues were unaware of. 

Even though their love story is idyllic, it might not have taken place if everything had gone as planned by the Tinsel producers. This is because Linda Ejiofor’s character, Bimpe was not intended to have lasted long, and that would have truncated their love story before it even began, but fate wasn’t going to allow that.

Linda Has Been Ibrahim Suleiman’s Wife For Over Three Years

After a little over two years of dating, Linda announced her engagement to her fellow Tinseltown actor on November 4, 2019, and they were married four days later. She and her spouse have been living peacefully and contentedly ever since. Regarding their union, there has been no scandals or scandalous rumors of any kind.

The couple has one son together so far. The boy was born sometime in 2020. With her spouse, Ibrahim Suleiman, and their son, Keon, the Suleiman’s are one happy family.

Linda and Ibrahim joined the likes of other Tinseltown lovers like Iyke Okechukwu and Florence Uwaleke, Damilola Adegbite and Chris Attoh, and Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro, to get joined together in holy matrimony.

Linda and Her Husband Run a Podcast Together

Linda Ejiofor and her husband were inspired to start their parenting podcast with the birth of their son, Keon. The couple started a parenting podcast in which they discuss the things they’ve learned along the way, from conception to postpartum.
