Firstly, all eulogies to Macky 2 for how much he has been able to accomplish in his decade long career in music.

What more can I say, Slap Dee also keeps hitting new milestones every year and sometimes we can only gap in to believe by checking his latest song making airwaves debut ‘Radio’. Also again managed to expand his long list of trophies under his belt.

Ascribing Macky 2 as a legend and more saddening picturing him in the same light as the man regarded as the founder of Zed Hip Hop Music and generator is shallow for the following reasons.

Both Macky 2 And Slap Dee Pioneered The Zed Hip Hop Genre.  

One of Macky 2′ biggest legacy is the innovation of the now locally recognized and curated genre of music classified as Dunka DunkA.

Dunka Dunka, which is directly linked to old Zambian music tunes. This is mainly a blend of Zed Beats and Zed Hip Hop, mixed with western Rap style and high life.

mixed a Dunka Dunka Zed Beat and produced great’s works on their music.

Macky 2’s Music Goes Beyond Youthful Expressions, Money And Infatuation.

Macky 2 uses his music not only for entertainment but consciously as a weapon. Best known for criticizing, uniting people,

talks about love, relationships and opposing ‘bad governing’ .

He and his Kopala Swag family, comprising of his younger brother Chef 187 keep making and producing hits over and over.

Slap Dee’s Music Is Just Beyond Reckoning

Slap Dee’’s entire discography has no song which stirs a certain consciousness like opposing ‘bad governing etc.

But Slap Dee’s music bears great recognition and has helped shape the Zambian Music Industry. And the man is also aiming higher each day that comes and does not know when to quit.


Well, welcome to the era of  music where he who owns the street is a king. And honestly speaking, social media is what makes these guys and the music they make hit.

Money is thrown around to help build or sustain an image. They both push so hand and at times produce a miss, songs which don’t even make sense.

The Zambian music legend PK Chishala knew how to conjure an image and brand with everything he did. His music performances were  eccentric with no nude stage appearance which was rare during his age. Both Macky 2 And Slap Dee are Kings, Both have played a major role in the music industry.
