I asked Sudanese music lover Hytham M. Hammer about this artist, and this was his reply:
“He lived a very poor man and died as one, with minimum television attention given to this wonderful singer who started singing in the early seventies along with The Dar Kourdofan Arts Group; a band of musicians and back singers that he himself used to train nicknamed there as ‘The Coach’. He stayed later in Hayy Al-Fallatah (known now as Hayy Ar-Rahmah), in El-Obeid, Kurdufan—his birthplace (He was born in 1945, died October, 1995. Full-name: Ibrahim Mohammed Moussa, but his mother used to call him ‘Aba’ so it has stuck with him ever since, and belonged to Al-Baqqara tribe), where he used to work as a women’s clothes seller, and an ironsmith. Among those who collaborated with him were poets Abdallah Kazem, Mustapha Abdel-Hady, and Bushra Suleiman.
