Biography of Ibrahim Abiodun Chatta
Born on 13th of October, 1970, Ibrahim Abiodun Chatta is a Nigerian actor, movie director, producer and singer. He was born into a large, polygamous Muslim family of fourteen children and he hails from a small town in Kwara state known as Bachita in Edu Local Government. Contrary to the popular opinion that Ibrahim Chatta is a Yoruba, he is actually of Tapa descent.
Growing up, Ibrahim Chatta lost interest in education at an early age due to his unruly and stubborn attitude which later made him drop out of Secondary school. He finished his primary education at St Bridges Catholic primary school, Bachita. He was successfully able to obtain his first school leaving certificate, and got enrolled into the Government Secondary School which was located in Bachita but he later got relocated to another region in Niger state, due to his stubborn behaviour. He attended Dende Secondary School, Aggeia before he later dropped out of school.
There have been speculations of him getting self educated and attending online courses.
To the surprise of many, Chatta speaks English fluently despite having a limited education. He also made his intentions known in 2018 about his desire to return to the educational world, having reeled out his regrets over missing out on formal education as a child, despite his father's attempt to make sure he was formally educated.
With little being known about his progress in enforcing his decision, Chatta has stated in an interview in 2020, that he was enrolled in a college of education in Ikire, Osun State. He has also joked about the possibility of even becoming a professor before he dies, and has urged people to get an education before venturing into any chosen career in life.
