Unknown Facts about Dave Chappelle’s Son Sulayman Chappelle

What would you do if you were a child of a big celebrity? In all honesty, we will probably get a bit spoilt with all the fame and probably also flaunt our celebrity status a little. But we guess in reality celebrity children are much more down-to-earth then you would expect them to be.

Many try their best to lead normal lives, and many of them can attain them. Just take Sulayman Chappelle for an example. Learn everything there is to know, and maybe you will even learn about his father’s net worth and career.

Who is Sulayman Chappelle?

Sulayman Chappelle is the oldest son of Dave Chappelle and his wife, Elaine Chappelle (née Mendoza Erfe). Along with Sulayman, his parents also gave birth to his two younger siblings. He has one younger brother by the name of Ibrahim Chapelle and a daughter, Sonal Chappelle

We do not even know Sulayman’s birthdate to be able to deduce his age. He can’t be older than his early 20s. If it were his father, we would be one Google search away from knowing everything about him, like how he was born on August 24, 1973, in Washington DC.

His Name has a Special Meaning

Sulayman’s father, Dave Chappelle, has been a religious man. He converted to the religion of Islam in 1998. Dave Chappelle has emphasized how he does not like to talk about his faith, but regardless, it holds an essential place in his life. After all, he gave all his children very meaningful names in Arabic.

Sulayman’s name is derived from the name Solomon who is the King of Israel in Arabic beliefs. His father also calls his son as King’s George for its symbolic meaning. His brother, Ibrahim’s name, is derived from Abraham, who is a Muslim prophet mentioned in their holy scripture, the Quran. It also means father of many in Arabic. Likewise, his little sister is named Sanaa from the Arabic word ‘Sana,’ which means “to shine.”

Sulayman Chappelle’s Fame through his Father

Not much is known about Sulayman Chappelle. Most of his fame is also associated with that of his father, Dave Chappelle. Even if he tried, he would have to work very hard to come out of his father’s shadows. His father, after all, is a 2-time winner of both Emmy and Grammy awards. His TV series ‘Chappelle’s Show,’ which ran from 2003 to 2006, really made him a household name.

Chappelle also has many hit movies under his belt like Mel Brooks’ ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights,’ ‘The Nutty Professor,’ ‘Con Air,’ ‘You’ve Got Mail,’ and ‘Screwed.’ Before that, he held a very successful career as a comedian, which he continues with many shows and tours.

It will not be easy to achieve fame with a father like Dave Chappelle, not that we are saying he’s trying to. Sulayman has managed to maintain a complete hush on public appearances as well as statements.

Who is Sulayman Chappelle’s Mother, Elaine Chappelle?

Sulayman Chappelle is just as much the son of Elaine Chappelle as he is Dave Chappelle’s. His mother, Elaine, was born on August 31, 1974, in the Philippines. She later immigrated to America, so she is of mixed-ethnicity being Asian-American.

Coming originally from the only Christian country in Asia, it is not surprising to know Elaine is also a devout Christian. The Philippines is a Christian majority country, so that is given. However, still, she does not let the religious difference between her husband and herself affect her relationship and family that she shares with him. She seems okay with her husband giving their children Arabic names too.7

Elaine is also not big on going public with her private information, but we have heard only nice things about her from Dave. She is apparently the glue that holds the entire family together. It is no wonder how her kids are growing up to be such beautiful people.

A fun fact about Elaine Chappelle is that she wanted to be a chef. We all know how delicious Filipino cuisine is now, don’t we? It’s a shame she did not have a chance to pursue her dreams. However, we are sure that she still shows exceptional talent when cooking food for Suleyman Chappelle and the rest of his siblings.

What is Sulayman Chappelle’s Instagram Account?

We are not sure that Sulayman Chappelle has an Instagram account. He is not active in any social media and not just Instagram. Even his mother, who is in public attention, does not have an Instagram account, and neither does his brother Ibrahim and sister Sanaa.

It is just sketchy that none of the Chappelle kids have IG. We suspect that Sulayman and his siblings do have a secret undercover Instagram account or some other type of social media only known by close friends and family.

Even his father, who is a public figure, is very discreet about his private life in social media. He has over 39.5k followers on Instagram and almost 620k followers on Twitter, and yet he only posts mostly updates about his work. His Twitter account only has 11 posts to date.
