Who Is Her Father?
As we said before, Sanaa Chappelle is the daughter of actor Dave Chappelle. Born in August 1973 as David Khari Webber Chappelle, Dave is an American stand-up comedian and actor. He is mostly known for his comedy shows.
Over the years, he has won many accolades, including the Emmy Award five times and the Grammy Award three times. In 2006, Esquire magazine called him the comic genius of America. In 2013, Billboard called him the best comedian. In 2017, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him at Number 9 in the 50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time.
He started his television career with a leading role in the ABC comedy series, Biddies in 1996. But he broke through in 2003 when he started his Comedy Central satirical sketch comedy series, Chappelle’s Show. It ran until 2006 when Dave quit the show in the middle of production.
Following a short hiatus, he returned to stand-up comedy across the US. His breakout HBO special Killin’ Them Softly in 2000 earned him a small fortune. And then in 2016, he signed a $20 million-per-release comedy special deal with Netflix. So far, he has released six stand-up specials.
Now let’s get back to Dave Chappelle’s daughter, Sanaa. She was born in 2009 in Yellow Springs, Ohio, United States. Sanaa is 13 years of age as of 2022. Sanaa Chappelle is the daughter of Dave and his wife Elaine Chappelle.
His father is the one who works in the family as a standup comedian, while her mother is a housewife. She is responsible for the family and household.
Sanaa spent her childhood with her siblings, Sulayman Chappelle and Ibrahim Chappelle. Her grandparents are William David Chappelle III and Yvonne Seon.
Sanaa holds American citizenship and belongs to a mixed-ethnic community. She also follows the Islamic religion.
Speaking about her relationship status, Sanaa is still way too young to be involved in any sort of relationship. Speaking about her parents, they got married in 2001. They met in New York and started dating for some time before tying the knot.
She was born in Yellow Springs, Ohio, a place she still lives with her family, including her mother, father, and her siblings. The house covers more than a 39-acre farm with a private gated entrance. Sanaa and her family enjoy the natural beauty of greenery in their big home.
As we said before, she has siblings. Sanaa is the youngest of the Chappelle family. Her older brothers Ibrahim Chappelle and Sulayman Chappelle raised her.
We said she follows the Islamic religion. That is because her father converted to Islam in 1991, so she follows the same religion as her father.
