Firdaus Iddrisu, popularly known as Shatta Bandle, is a ‘dwarf’ born in the Karaga district of the Northern Region of Ghana, he then moved to Accra to pursue his dreams.
He stated in an interview that being rich has always been his main goal. In pursuit of this, he quit school as he did not believe that formal education was fundamental in his journey to get to live the life he wanted. Due to his lack of formal education, Shatta is not very fluent in English. He is, however, very articulate in his mother tongue Hausa.
He is currently one of the newest internet sensations to come from Ghana after a video of him claiming to be richer than the richest man in Africa, Aliko Dangote, started circulating on social media.
Bandle is not only popular in Ghana but in Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and the Benin Republic after Nigerian communities posted and tweeted about him as well as their reactions to his video.
Although Shatta Bandle over brags about his wealth, he has been accepted by a lot of people including celebrities both in Ghana and Nigeria and has been interviewed on a number of radio and T.V stations and this has definitely made him more popular and extended his boundaries.
Shatta Bandle’s Age
One of the main mysteries that surround Bandle is how old he is. Whenever he is asked this question, he always finds a way to run past answering it. In one interview, he claimed that he was only two months old, which was met with hilarious reactions from his audience. He is however believed to be in his 20s.
Shatta Bandle Net Worth
Shatta Bandle is a rich man. The extent of his wealth is what is still up for debate. One would expect that he would follow up his bold claims that he is richer than Aliko Dangote and even Bill Gates with facts that would not leave anyone with questions. He did not, so sadly his net worth is still unknown.
Reports have it that Shatta Bandle has a sponsor by the name Nana Kojo Boateng a.k.a Dada Joe Remix. These are still rumours though, as no one can prove whether this mystery sponsor exists or not.
Bandle once bragged that his net worth was $70 million at a party once, but this statement also can’t be proven. He also mentioned in an interview that he could not calculate his net worth as he can’t track his streams of income. Although it is unclear whether he was serious or if we should put this down as his sense of humour, we do however know some of his sources of income as he claims.
His business is in the oil and gas sector, which is a very profitable one. He is a bit hesitant about disclosing the details of his business, only saying that he works with oil companies in Ghana, Nigeria and even in the United Arab Emirates.
One huge controversy about Shatta is whether the properties that he shows off are his. In the numerous photos that he posts on his Instagram, Shatta Bandle’s cars make a lot of appearances.
