Sheibani partied around the world, drove a Bentley and a Porsche, and paid for cosmetic surgery for himself and his girlfriend, the Manchester Evening News reports.
He claimed his riches had come from legitimate sources.
But prosecutors were able to prove his lavish lifestyle had been funded by crime.
“Your greed knows no boundaries,” Judge Anthony Cross QC told Sheibani.
“I am satisfied that you are at the very head of a large scale, international drugs conspiracy.”
The judge said the evidence showed Sheibani was “close to the very source of production in Colombia”.
His property portfolio in Manchester, London, and Spain was built up as Sheibani lied about what his income was and where it came from.
He also forged documents, including bank statements and a P60, to support his false declared earnings.
Sheibani evaded tax, failing to declare more than £3 million in income to HMRC.
And police learned he had purchased items that can be used in the production of the class A drug, including two 30 tonne industrial presses, plastic vacuum packing bags, and acetone as well as professional banknote counting machines.
When officers raided his luxury apartment in Bowdon, they found he had an Encore phone, a military-grade encrypted handset used by high-level criminals.
