Early life

David Orobosa Omoregie was born on 5 June 1998 in Streatham, South London to parents of Nigerian descent.[2][3] Dave started writing lyrics at the age of eleven after being inspired by his older brother before his mother bought him a piano three years later.[6]

Dave’s early education took place at Saint Mark’s Church of England Academy in Mitcham, South London close to his home in Streatham. Dave then studied law, philosophy and ethics, and sound design at Richmond Sixth Form in West London sixth form college[7] and has two brothers that are currently incarcerated.[8]
