Diego was born Sunday Emmanuel Henry, a native of Ohaozara L.G.A of Ebonyi state, Nigeria.
He is the third child of a family of 7. He attended Seventh Day Adventist Grammar school, Osun State where he had his Highschool education before he proceeded to Adeyemi College of Education in 2012 to study Computer Science. Growing up wasn’t smooth and perfect coming out of a family of 7. Although, he couldn’t get all he needed as a music lover from his parents as a child but his basic needs were intact.
Diego started developing keen interest in music, singing and listening to songs from the 90’s & early 2000’s.
Basically, music was/is a major influence to him because he feels freedom and happiness when listening to music.
Diego was fond of singing and rhyming to songs with friends while in Highschool but never took it serious until in 2018 when he was featured in a song titled “The Code” alongside PSO & StudioBoy which eventually exposed his instinct to the possibility of making music professionally.
He is currently under the management of DYH Records, a label owned by Paul Samson.
