A 90’s Kid, Ntanga Prince Marandela popularly known as Diggy was born on 5 July 1999 in Johannesburg, South Africa Where he was raised by his mother in and extended family.
At the age of 13 Diggy Was already in and out of studios to pursue his music career, citing his enviroment as his main source inspiration to become a better artist.
According to him “The road to success hasn’t always been easy. The Hustler (What people refer him as), following my humble beginnings as a rapper on the streets of his hometown East rand. As a kid born in a somewhat unconducive environment, I was determined to rewrite my story, not minding how it all began. I chose not to let those uninspiring and unexciting beginning determine who I have become, though it was not an easy as it sounds. But the determination and the desire to become who I want to surpasses every other obstacle.
So in the view of what my journey, I decided to let go of so many things; the mediocrity, the fear of failure, mundane orientations, contentment, etc. In some way, it had determined the way some people from where I came from lived and died, but I refused to follow that path. Hence the person I was becoming.” he said.
He continued’ “My musical talent, entrepreneurial knack, and unrelenting pursuit for success are all evidence of what my journey has so far become. I continually work on refining my arts in these fields until my whole life reflects what true success is, and that’s making my surroundings better than I found them.
My journey has just begun, and I can’t deny how exciting it has been. Believe me, it hasn’t been cozy all the way, but I chose not to let the bitter days define my journey so far. my journey into music started when I was quite young.
You will face the trouble that accompanies the journey of life, but it’s totally in your hands to let them decide how your journey ends. No life is without ill, and neither is any journey. So, learn how to deal with it, and your journey will be a joyful voyage.” He said.
Diggy will be releasing his third single in July this year. His is currently starting his own charity organisation, which he intends giving back to the unfortunate kid’s.
