Here is Macky 2’s story:
Growing up like any other ordinary child on the copperbelt, third born in a family of 6,Mark Mulaza Kaira would not have bought it if dreams were sold,imagine how much it would have costed to buy ”being Macky 2 when you grow up”..
”Life is how you make it,dreams do come true and only you can make it happen: My mom died when I was 8 and my Dad died when I was in the 7th Grade”-Macky 2 on Nangu Banchinge ..
