Hip-Hop and R&B singer Mulaza kaira popularly known by his stage name, Macky2 or DJ Bugar,  has disclosed that music has turned more into a business venture than it was a few years ago.

He said that this transformation has become one of the major challenges in the music industry as its invasion can no longer be controlled.

“I would advice my fellow artists to ensure that before releasing an album, be sure that you are popular enough to people so that they can be willing to buy your album,” Macky2 said.

Macky2 elaborated that music is like fashion and it will always change with time.

He cautioned that for one to enter in this sector of entertainment, he /she must surely study the industry like he did when he joined.

“Hip-Hop in Zambia was not really accepted as it was considered foreign, but these days it has become one of the most prominent types of music being done in the country,” he said.

However, Mulaza alluded that despite all the challenges faced in the music industry, he never intends to venture into any other field besides music because he has chosen it as his dream career from childhood.

Additionally, the Hip-Hop rapper revealed that he has not released an album for the past two years because he is busy arranging to put-up an album for Africa.

” I have been an artist for ten years now and I don’t intend to leave the music industry. I have not released an album for the past two years because I think I have done all that Zambians have to hear and I now intend to put-up an album for Africa,” Macky2 said.

He affirmed that his inspirations as a musician are from different people and through different things around him. He therefore wishes for the music industry to grow and improve for the better and be a self-sustained firm.

“I was born in Luanshya in the Copperbelt Province on 10th October, 1984. My inspirations are from different people like politicians, foreign artists and various things around me and am just a naturally loveable and enthusiastic entertainer,” he said.

In 2013, Macky2 participated in the ninth season of Big Brother Africa where he emerged third in the competition .
