"From humble beginnings in Dandora where he was living in the streets to achieving his dreams through hard work and perseverance," the post said.

Marcus is a big part of the groups success due to his outstanding choreography.

It is through his dream that he worked hard and was determined to make it out of the hood. 

"Never underestimate the power of hard work and determination," the post continued.
