Donovan Chad Mansoor (born 16 April 1993), best known by his stage name Chad (formerly Chad da Don), is a South African hip-hop record producer, songwriter and rapper. Ever since exploding on to the SA music scene with his smash hit Hola, which saw him team up with former Label Head Cassper Nyovest of Family Tree, Chad a.k.a. Chad Da Don has been honing his craft and unique sound.
Chad quickly garnered attention in the Hip Hop community for his hard hitting lyrics and unmistakable flow, in which he revealed personal struggles and an upbringing that ultimately saw him being held hostage by his father. He has since found atonement in his new label ContraBanned, founded by fellow collaborators Andrew and Brian Chaplin of Locnville. The move has seen Chad graduate to a more versatile sound which includes quick fire punchlines delivered in melodic rhythms which can be heard in his brand new single, Hold On You ft. Locnville & Djenga, rumored to be a first single from a 2nd studio album which will be the follow up to 2016’s The Book of Chad which is set to achieve Gold sales status.
The new single, Hold On You was the No.1 trending topic on Twitter on the day of release and is currently featured in the #CokeTop40SA with Apple Music.
