Born in Mongomo, Chupe spent 13 years as a senior in Spanish football safe for a very brief spell in Switzerland with FC Chiasso, but never competed in higher than Segunda División B. He spent several seasons associated with Real Madrid but only appeared officially with its C and B-teams, even though main squad manager Vicente del Bosque registered him in one UEFA Champions League list as a youth system player.
Other than the Merengues Chupe represented in the country AD Alcorcón, UD Las Palmas, UD Puertollano, Rayo Vallecano, CD Leganés, CD Vera de Almería, CD Binéfar, SD Noja (two spells) and SD Leioa. In 2012–13, at age 32, he made his debuts as a professional, representing Kazincbarcikai SC in Hungary's second level.
Chupe gained five caps for Equatorial Guinea, the first two coming in 2003 in the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Togo: he made his debut on 11 October in the 1–0 home win in Bata (1–2 aggregate loss).
