Shatta Bandle history
Bandle was born and raised in Karaga district in 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.

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 weasel out of answering it. In one interview, he claimed that he was only two months old, which was met with hilarious laughter.
In another interview, he said that he was twenty years old. This is still up for debate with most people claiming that he looks older than that, regardless of his stature.
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.
He did not, so sadly his net worth is still unknown. Bandle also once bragged that his net worth was $70 million at a party once, but this statement also can’t be proven. He once said 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 know some of his sources of income. 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.
