José Sergio Vega Cuamea , better known by his stage name Sergio Vega, was a Mexican banda singer. He was born in Hornos, Sonora, located near Ciudad Obregón in Mexico. On 26 June 2010, he died near the hills of Barobampo, Mexico after a car chase by an assassination gang in his car.
The assassins pursued Sergio Vega for a distance and fired at him 30 times and his car companion Montiel Sergio Avila. He was killed and his companion was seriously injured.
He was born on September 12, 1969 in Hornos, Sonora, located near Ciudad Obregón, and is the eighth of thirteen children. In the late 1980s, he immigrated to the United States.
In 1989, while living in Phoenix, Arizona, Vega and his brothers formed a group called Los Hermanos Vega, which signed with Joey Records and had several hits such as Corazón de Oropel and El Rayo de Sinaloa. In 1994, after five years with the group, Vega decided to leave the group and formed another group called Los Rayos del Norte, and signed with Digital Universal. This group had hits such as Las Parcelas de Mendoza, El Dólar Doblado, El Ayudante, Olor a Hierba, Eres mi Estrella, and Ayúdame a Vivir.
After three years under this name, Vega decided for publicity reasons to change the name of his group to Sergio Vega y Sus Shakas Del Norte, which it has remained to the present day. Two of his most recent album releases include 2004’s Me Gusta Estar Contigo, and 2007’s Cuando El Sol Salga Al Reves and now his latest album El Jefe De Plazas 2008 with hits like Disculpe Usted and Que Se Mueran Los Feos.
