Abdullah Shafiu Ibrahim is a Maldivian film actor and playback singer.

Career[edit]

Ibrahim made his film debut with the Dark Rain Entertainment production, the Ali Shifau-directed romantic comedy Vaashey Mashaa Ekee (2016) opposite Mohamed Jumayyil and Mariyam Majudha narrating the life of a happily married couple being separated due to the husband's crippling fear of commitment on his wife's pregnancy.[1][2] His performance as an unfaithful boyfriend fetched him a nomination as the Best Male Debut at the 8th Gaumee Film Awards ceremony.[3] The following year, Ibrahim featured in another Ali Shifau-directed romantic comedy, Mee Loaybakee alongside Mohamed Jumayyil and Mariyam Azza.[4] The film, which is considered to include the largest cast in a Maldivian feature film, narrates the story of two ex-lovers sliding into the friend zone with the envy and diffidence they experience amidst a convoluted love-triangle.[5] His performance as a comedic friend diagnosed with piles received a positive response from critics where Aishath Maaha of Avas wrote: "considering this is his second release, Ibrahim showed great potential with his admirable performance with the perfect comic timing".[5] The film emerged as one of the highest grossing Maldivian films of 2017.[6]

Ibrahim next starred in a recurring role in the first Maldivian web-series, a romantic drama by Fathimath Nahula, Huvaa which began streaming in November 2018.[7] The series consists of sixty episodes and streamed through the digital platform Baiskoafu, centering around a happy and radiant family which breaks into despairing pieces after a tragic incident that led to an unaccountable loss.[8][9] The series and his performance as a gang-member being arrested for murder, were positively received.[10][11]
