It's a German word mostly used in or around Hamburg which has absolutely nothing to do with the word nigger!
It's said that it was used by dockers in Hamburg for the first time and was later adopted by the Hamburger Hip-Hop Wave in the early 90s!
It has the same meaning as the English "mate", "dude" or "bro" depending on the context!
"Digga, hast du ein Problem?!" - "You got a problem, dude?"

"Ey Digga, was geht?" - "Yo dude, what's up?"

Also Dicker, Digger, Diggah or Diggha is a german phrase, that is the equivalent to the english term bro, dude or homie.

In the german language you can describe someone as "dicker Freund" which literally translates to "fat friend" but actually means "close friend"; so a "Dicker/Digga" is a "close one"

The "ck" in Dicker changed to the "gg" in Digga because of the Hamburg dialect. Further the word was popularized by the hip hop culture of northern Germany in the early 90s and is today used all over the country especially in Berlin.

The german word is a positive one and has nothing to do with the american derogatory term "ni**er“
Hey Digga lang nicht mehr gesehen! - Hey bro long time no see!

Derived from the word Digger, used to describe Australian troops who dug the trenches in WWI, Digger has been cultural slang in Australia for mate, which is slang for friend. More recently Digga has made the rounds as the urban tongue licks Australian suburb vernacular, being an excellent substitute in hip hop for a more demeaning rhyming word as it holds no class representation due to the absence of racial divide when on the frontline. It is to be used only when the receiver and the payer of the term are in Australia, or when an Aussie meets another Aussie in another part of the world. VERY easily misinterpreted, especially in South Central LA or the "ghetto", where you will not have the opportunity to explain its origins.
Wassup, Digga?
