He is from South Cotabato.

Edgar is from South Cotabato and that is where he is still based. Before his career in gaming and streaming even started, Edgar used to just earn P30 a day from working in the local market. He now has a totally different story, though. Thanks to streaming, he was even able to raise funds in a series of charity streams called Stars for a Cause, earnings from which were donated to those who were affected by the earthquake in North Cotabato. He also did the same for victims of the Taal Volcano eruption in January 2020.


His family almost left him because of gaming.

Edgar revealed in a feature on Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho that his wife almost left him because he was too focused on playing video games that he started neglecting his responsibilities as a father. His wife recounted how he would wake up late in the afternoon and even then, he would go straight to playing games. After realizing his shortcomings, Edgar decided to set his priorities straight and put his family first. Now, he dedicates his earnings from streaming to making sure his family lives a comfortable life.

He was able to build his dream house thanks to streaming.

After around three years of streaming his gameplays, Edgar was able to earn enough to have their family's dream house built. Prior to that, Edgar and his family lived in an apartment they just rented. Now their new mansion-like home has enough space for his family. The house has a pool and he also has his own game room. After his dream house, Edgar says he wants to invest in a business next.
