The death has been announced of popular Hausa actor, Rabilu Musa aka Dan Ibro.
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. He
was 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 subsequently laid low until recently. He is believed to have appeared in more movies than any actor in the Kannywood industry.
