She was born, Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, on February 2, 1977.

She has definitely come a long way since then, as she is currently an accomplished Colombian singer, songwriter, dancer, and record producer. She first made her mark in the Latin American market with the release of her first studio albums, Magia and Peligro, in the early 1990s.

Her father name is William Mebarak Chadid and mother name is Nidia Ripoll. She is the only child. The name Shakira is Arabic which means grateful. She was raised Catholic and attended Catholic School.

When she was four years old she wrote her first poem titled as La Rosa De Cristal/ The Crystal Rose. She also did belly dancing when she heard Doumbek (traditional drum used in Arabic music). Due to her hyperactivity (ADHD), she was often sent out of the class.

At the age between 10 and 13 she was invited to various events in the town. She was a talented girl from the very beginning only. She impressed the director by performing three songs for the executives and which led her to sign to record three albums.

The English market did not get the ‘Shakira experience’, till the release of her fifth studio album, Laundry Service, with the hit single‘Whenever, Wherever’, which went on to become the best-selling single of 2002.

Soon after, the even more popular Hips Don’t Lie came out as part of her Oral Fixation album, but it was her official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, ‘Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)‘ that really blew. It became the biggest-selling World Cup song of all time.

Shakira’s Height

You don’t need a seer to tell you that our girl Shakira is a bit on the petite side… did we say a bit? She’s completely on the petite side. The star stands not so tall at 5 feet 2 inches, but when it comes to her, no one doubts the saying ‘good things come in small packages’.

Shakira’s Weight

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, the star admitted that she had a “plump” figure during her teen years.
Mainly because she was more focused on training her voice and launching her career than her body image. We believe her exact words were, ‘As a teenager I was plump but my appearance wasn’t so important at that time, I know that image in this profession is a matter of opinion.

She added, ‘I think the external appearance in show business is important and over the years I’ve discovered my assets.’ Oh yes, she has, so what does the scale actually read when Shakira steps in it? The singer weight 53 kg and she wears it well.
