Early Life & Education

Ibrahim Chatta was born on October 13, 1970, in Bachita, a town in Edu Local Government Area of Kwara State, Nigeria, and is turning 54 in 2024.

He is the second child of his father, Alhaji Ismaila Afolabi Chatta, a wealthy businessman and politician, and his mother, Hajia Aishat Chatta, a devout Muslim and housewife.

He has 13 siblings, seven brothers and six sisters, all older or younger than him. He grew up in a large family that was well-respected in the community. Ibrahim attended St. Anthony’s Primary School in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State, for his elementary education.

However, due to financial constraints, Ibrahim’s academic journey was cut short when he could not proceed to secondary school. His father, who had multiple wives and children, could not afford to sponsor all of them to further their education.

Ibrahim was among the unlucky ones who had to drop out of school and fend for themselves. He was devastated by this turn of events and felt betrayed by his father.

Ibrahim decided to leave his hometown and move to Lagos, the commercial hub of Nigeria, in search of greener pastures. He was only 15 years old when he embarked on this journey. He had no relatives or friends in Lagos, so he had to survive independently.

He did various menial jobs to make ends meet, such as working as a bus conductor, a mechanic, a bricklayer, a barber and a security guard. He faced many challenges and hardships in Lagos but never gave up on his dreams of becoming an actor and a singer.

Personal Life

Ibrahim Chatta has been married three times in his life. His first marriage was to Olayinka Solomon, a fellow actress and producer. They met on the set of a movie and fell in love. They got married in 2006 and had a son named Malik Damilare Chatta.

However, their marriage did not last long, as they divorced in 2009 due to irreconcilable differences. Ibrahim accused Olayinka of being unfaithful and disrespectful, while Olayinka claimed that Ibrahim was abusive and irresponsible.

Ibrahim’s second marriage was to Salamatu Mohammed Lafiaji, the daughter of a former senator from Kwara State, Shaaba Lafiaji. They married in 2012 in a lavish ceremony many celebrities and politicians attended.

They had a daughter named Khadijat Adebisi Chatta. However, their marriage also ended in divorce in 2014 due to incompatibility and interference from their families. Ibrahim alleged that Salamatu was too proud and arrogant, while Salamatu complained that Ibrahim was too controlling and demanding.

Ibrahim’s third and current marriage is to Olaide Aishat Chatta, a businesswoman and socialite. They married in 2016 in a low-key ceremony only witnessed by their close friends and relatives.

They have been living happily together ever since. Ibrahim has described Olaide as his soulmate and best friend, while Olaide has praised Ibrahim as her hero and protector.
