Who is Frida Sofia Guzman Munoz? El Chapo's 16-yr-old granddaughter launches music career
Frida became one of three finalists on the Mexican equivalent of America’s Got Talent , 'Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento'
El Chapo’s granddaughter, 16-year-old Frida Sofia Guzman Munoz, has launched her singing career. The teen became a finalist on a popular reality show in Mexico. She became one of three finalists on the Mexican equivalent of America’s Got Talent, 'Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento', in November last year. Her singing career got a boost even though she did not win the show.
Frida is the daughter of Edgar Guzman Lopez, a son of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. El Chapo is known for having headed up the Sinaloa Cartel. He is at present serving a life sentence for murder and drug trafficking at a Colorado prison.
Edgar Guzman Lopez, known for being one of El Chapo’s favorite sons, died in a gun battle in a shopping center parking lot in Sinaloa’s capital Culiacan back in May 2008. Following the shootout, 500 bullet casings from AK-47s were recovered by authorities. Reports stated that it was a case of mistaken identity where Guzman Lopez was mistaken for Arturo Beltran Leyva -- the rival Beltran Leyva cartel's head. Mexican news reports said that devasted by his son's tragic death, El Chapo bought more than 50,000 roses -- all that were available in the city -- for the funeral.
Frida came to prominence after she sang the Mexican national anthem during a boxing event in Durango in 2020. Besides singing, Frida also works as a model. Her Instagram page with over 81,000 followers features several videos of the teenager performing in concerts. Frida reportedly also likes to box, following the steps of her step-father, Julio Cesar Lopez Jr, a professional boxer who held the World Boxing Council’s middleweight title from 2011 to 2012. Frida's mother married Chavez Jr after her father was murdered in 2008. One of her Instagram posts shows her training on a Friday.
Frida documents her music career and her love for music through various posts on Instagram, with captions written in Spanish. "With affection, I share this interpretation with all those who would like their loved one to be with them this Christmas here on earth. I hope you like it," she wrote in Spanish in one of her videos. "Positive energy can heal the universe," she captioned a picture of hers in a long while dress with roses in her hand. "Here I leave you the full video of my presentation at #LaGranFinal by @tengotalentomuchotalento #Leñadepirul," she has captioned another video of her performing on stage.
