VIDEO: D’banj delves into Afro-trap on ‘El Chapo’ as he releases new album


With the aid of auto-tune, Wande Coal, and American rapper Gucci Mane, D’banj has released another single off his forthcoming King Don Come album.

D’banj, who has been experimenting with different sounds since parting ways with Don Jazzy, makes a foray into trap music — spiced with Afropop — in ‘El-Chapo’.

Trap music is a sub-genre which originated from southern US in the 1990s. It is heavily influenced by hip-hop.

The music video for D’banj’s El Chapo was directed by American production company, Eif Rivera.

As is with most D’banj songs and videos, the lyrics and visuals see the entertainer and his collaborators brag about their possessions and status as invincible “bosses”.

The song gets its inspiration from Mexican drug lord Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, better known as El Chapo.
