Ghibran was born and raised in Coimbatore. When he was in his 10th standard, his family relocated to Chennai after his father suffered a severe loss in business. He had to discontinue studies and do several jobs to support his family.
Ghibran said that had developed an interest in music after he had seen Yanni perform in front of the Taj Mahal on TV, when he was about eight or ten. He had enrolled into a music college, but had to drop out and instead attended keyboard classes and learnt keyboard part time from Paul Augustine. He completed his eighth grade in keyboard and got an offer from a studio to compose music for their animations as an in house composer. He was working there for two years. In 2000, he set up his own studio and over the next six years composed for over 700 ads.
He then joined a university in Singapore. In Singapore, he worked part-time composing music for media houses to meet his expenses. After completing his works, he worked for the Singapore wood and percussion instruments orchestra. He stated that the work was satisfying but it wasn\'t enough for survival and therefore he decided to come back to India. But his previous clients had moved on and he didn\'t get many ads to work on.
M Ghibran, having worked in several Ad films, was a good friend of director A. Sarkunam and Vimal.
