Ibrahim Buhari’s anthology, Why Don’t We Fall in Love? Part I, stemmed from his popularity on Instagram where he updates his account Ibrahim_w_buhari every morning with a new verse.

The 28-year-old, who lives in Guy Townsley Square, said: “I have been writing and posting for a good few years, but I always did it as a hobby.

“I then did some research on writing a book and felt that I could do it if I really wanted to and I did.”

His work focuses on the complications associated with finding and being in love.

Ibrahim, a project co-ordinator, added: “Whether you’re with someone or alone you need love - self-love, friendship love, family love and unconditional love is what you need to experience.”

Ibrahim is currently working on part two.
