In February of this year, Marcy was blessed to have had a lifetime deal with SMS write publishing, LLC agency in the USA and he’s the first ever African and black male author to get such a deal. With his epic performances, Marcy has touched many lives through his style of spoken word poems.

Marcy has won so many writing competitions and was given the stage on July 23 to perform a mind-blowing spoken word poetry at the Miss Liberia Grand finale, he also performed at the kickoff of the Miss Liberia Beauty Pageant as well. So far, he’s been seen as the most branded spoken word artist in our motherland (Liberia).

December of this year, Marcy will be performing at the African Heritage Program in Accra, Ghana. He will have the time to share stage with Sarkodie, Master KG, Shatta Wale, Omar Lay, Darkoo, Black Sherif, etc.

There’s still a lot to be witnessed from this promising young son of the soil that is still unsaid due to his introverted lifestyle.

Let’s wish him well.
