Shatta Bandle is a self-acclaimed richest man in Africa, a Ghanian internet sensation and an Instagram celebrity, from the Northern part of Ghana who suffers from dwarfism and malformation. He became an Instagram sensation following his claims that he is far more richer than Nigerian-business mogul and the Chairman of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote in a viral video that trended and sparked reactions across Nigeria, Ghana, Benin Republic and South Africa.
Shatta Bandle came to prominence after Nigeria netizens and social media influencers such as Tunde Ednut and others reacted to his video where he claimed he was more successful and richer than Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote.
The Nigerian cyberspace is known for its humour and brutal savages and has also been responsible for producing either deliberate or non-deliberate comedians over the years. Nigerians tend to ‘rally round’ and ironically cheer individuals who profess to be above high profile individuals or celebrities.
Among those who fall in this category of comedians that have been elevated are Vic-O, a supposed Nigerian rapper who claims to be the best rapper in Nigeria when, indeed, he is not; Speed Darlington, an America-based Nigerian musician who claims to inspire Diddy. Ironically, his voice and songs are nothing to write home about but has enjoyed a fair amount of followership over time; and Mr “Haq Haq Haq” or “Mr. Eventuarry”, a supposed Ghanian taxi driver known for his poor command of the English language who, however, speaks with confidence.
Shatta Bandle Biography
Shatta Bandle whose original name is Idris Firdaus is a self-acclaimed billionaire in his 20’s. He claims to be richer than Aliko Dangote whose net worth is $9.7 billion. He is a Ghanaian and a Northerner from a small village called Karaga. The name ‘Bandle’ according to him, is coined out of the bundles of money he’s seen lavishing around. Aside from being referred to as Shatta Bandle, he is as also known as the ‘young, young rich nigga‘.
While Shatta Bandle has attained the celebrity status, he is seen as comic relief and his Instagram skits have pointed to that over time. Some Nigerian celebrities have reacted either directly to Shatta Bandle’s claim or indirectly by making hilarious comments and have praised ‘the new African billionaire’ who has no known businesses.
To his credit, Shatta Bandle, since his emergence about a month ago, has never for once stopped flaunting luxurious and expensive pieces of jewelry, cars and even a private jet he claims he owns, which got many thinking if he is indeed the person he says he is.
On his level of wealth, Shatta Bandle has been engaged with popular Ghanian musician, Shatta Wale who trolled the acclaimed richest man in Africa to use his money wisely and fix his teeth. A comment which obviously did not go well with Shatta Bandle who fired back at the musician to ‘stay on his lane’.
Like Shatta Wale, many have shown concerns over the poor dentition of Shatta Bandle whose set of teeth are almost out of his mouth, save a few. He has been advised to channel his money into fixing his dentition and the advice has gone unanswered ever since.
