For a figure as small as Shatta Bundle, it takes so much courage to do what he does.
The diminutive internet sensation has managed to take over the internet by surprise with his videos which he initially directed towards Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote and later some other entertainment figures in Ghana.
Initially his actions were misunderstood and was welcomed with hostility from Nigerians and was met with insults directed not only to him but to Ghana for allowing what they termed as nonsense posts.

However, after they got the ‘steeze’ in what he was doing, he has won their hearts and has turned to be a star by night in Nigeria, hanging out with some of their stars like Rudeboy of P Square who shot a music video with him and hit a million views in 24 hours. He also managed to appear on stage of a notable show in Lagos, Nigeria.
How well do you know the diminutive figure Shatta Bundle, Ghana’s ‘Yon Rich Nigga’ as he calls himself?
Shatta Bundle originally hails from the Northern part of Ghana, precisely Tamale. His real name is Firdaus Iddrisu. Though his real age is currently unknown, it can be estimated around the early 20’s.
Shatta Bundle has received various backlashes from people who initially weren’t getting the drift, calling him to go fix his front teeth before making certain utterances, but the truth according sources indicates that he lost his front teeth in an accident. He has had no formal education whiles growing up.
Shatta Bundle, the ‘yon rich nigga’ has expressed his love for Nigerian singer Wizkid’s songs and jams to it most often. His videos are championed by a wealthy Ghanaian man by name Dada Joe Remix.
Nigerian blogs made him more popular and acceptable in Nigeria before his fun became a hit in Ghana. Quite recently when he was in Nigeria to shoot a music video for Rudeboy of P Square, Nigerian immigration officers were captured taking pictures with him and hailing him as well.
Don’t misinterpret his videos, but see them as a diminutive figure’s way of becoming a global icon and support him if you can.
