SyonkoTheMan is a 28 year old South African up and coming rapper/producer born in the Nkomazi region, which is the north-east side of the Mpumalanga province in a small village called Ntunda. His grandparents named him "Wethu" when he was born, which means "ours".
He moved to the Kingdom Of ESwatini to live with his grandmother in 2004 at the age of 11, a year after the passing of his mother who was a single parent at the time. He says he has always known that he wants to be a musician as early as he can remember, but it not until early 2006 while living in Pigg's Peak and attending Rosenberg Primary School that him and his friends decided to form a hip hop crew.
The crew did not achieve much as it did not even have a name, but they were able to record two songs over the course of two years. In 2009 he moved back home to Ntunda to start high school and begin his journey as a solo art
