Donovan Chad Mansoor, best known by his stage name Chad da Don, is a South African hip-hop record producer, songwriter and rapper. Chad released his debut studio album The Book of Chad on 16 April 2016, his 23rd birthday.
Chad was born and raised in Pretoria and eventually relocated to Midrand in his teenage years. Chad had started a Christian rap group while he was a teenager, but went solo shortly after.
While growing up, Chad played soccer and represented South Africa in the under-14 national squad. The tournament was hosted in Zurich.
Chad released his debut single titled “Hola”, featuring his then label-boss Cassper Nyovest. Due to creative differences, Chad left Family Tree Records and started his own label imprint DCM Entertainment.
Amongst those signed are fellow artists and songwriters, his best friend Bonafide and rapper Exe.
Chad is now also signed to Locnville’s new label ContraBanned.
The move has seen Da Don graduate to a more resourceful sound which includes rapid punchlines delivered in melodic rhythms such as those heard on the 2016 single “Hold On You” feat. Locnville and Djenga.
Undeniably one of the best lyricists that SA has ever produced, Chad da Don is back with his latest offering Korobela.
This time around the versatile rapper takes on the distinctive Motswako sound and mixed it with the very potent Chad da Don flavor to produce a hit.
Korobela. Korobela is known as a love potion in the African culture, with this hit, Chad’s fans will be glad to see the Don return to what he does best: serving fresh lyrics and dope beats in 2018.
