Ibraah Singing and Career Journey
Before embarking in to 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 artistes occassionally.
One day after school, he was walking to the market while singing songs of other artistes 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 in 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 the 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 artistes across East Africa.
Ibraah journey to Meeting Harmonize
In the year 2016, Duke Boy promised Ibraah that he could try all means possible to make him meet Harmonize and furthermore be among the artistes who are under Harmonize.
The bongo artiste has gone through many struggles to make ends meet and grow his talent. In the year 2017, he went to Dar es Salaam to do his hawking business and as he used to. While on his errands, he received a call from Duke Boy notifying him that Harmonize was to have a show at Masasi. Without wasting time, he left to Masasi where he got a chance to perform on stage but he did not get a chance to talk to Harmonize personally.
Ibraah did not give up; he made more efforts to attend more Harmonize shows but he occasionally failed to talk to Harmonize. Duke Boy decided to look for Harmonize contacts and gave them to Ibraah. Ibraah’s efforts to make phone calls to Harmonize were in vain because Harmonize could not easily receive calls more so from strangers.
In the year 2019, Duke Boy got a chance to be the driver of Harmonize’s mother. One day Duke Boy called Ibraah and told him that they meet at Harmonize’s Sinza Studio. At the studio, Ibraah met producer Bonga and Beauty Mmari (current manager to Harmonize). Bonga and Mmari requested Ibraah to sing for them so that they could listen to him. They listened to his music skills and asked him to go home as they would give him phone call to notify him on their decision later.
Five days later, Duke Boy called to notify him that he had given Tshs. 50,000 to producer Bonga to use it to record the song he had sang so that they could give Harmonize to listen to it too. After Ibraah’s song was recorded, a few days elapsed and he received a call that Harmonize wants to see him.
This made Ibraah to be so happy as his dreams were coming true. When he went to meet Harmonize, he was asked to sing. Harmonize listened to him and asked him to be visiting the office daily to assist in office chores and recording of songs. Later, Ibraah was officially signed under Konde Music Worldwide Label.
In 2020, he recorded his first song “NIMEKUBALI” under the Konde label which became a hit and made him get recognized in the Tanzanian Music Industry. He has also released an album/EP titled “STEPS” which comprised of five songs. Some of the songs under the album are collaborations with various Nigerian artistes such as Skiibii and JoeBoy.
