After more than 30 years in the music business, one of Jamaica’s most prolific female dancehall deejay, Macka Diamond, is sending out a sound warning to her detractors.
Comparing herself to the tropical sun, the deejay who coined the popular “Money Woo” phrase, says she is still on the sunny side of life and will be red hot this summer. ” The COVID-19 restrictions had me on a pause, but I am ready again to heat up dancehall. Don’t worry about my age, I have the stamina to keep you gyrating ’till you can’t sweat no more.
“And I am not in for the idle talk. It will be great energy and great edutainment. For, I have to talk to, especially the young females, to be independent and bold. Hold their heads up high so that they will become strong independent women and good role models in society.”
The deejay, born Charmaine Munroe, is celebrating back -to-back success tours in South Africa and Costa Rica. “Africa was just great. This was my second trip and my fans, who had missed me due to COVID-19 lockdowns, came out in their numbers and sing- along with me. As for the Costa Rica shows, the event dubbed, “Dwayno Production in Association with Club Peppers,” was held at four venues, including San Jose, Port Limon and Turrialba.
Macka Diamond unleashed a number of songs , including “Dye Dye,” “Cow Foot,” “Play Tune,” “Cucumber,” and ‘Wuk Off.” Other acts on the show include Dwayno, King Blak, Lynx and Con Crossis. Macka Diamond is preparing for her next show which will headline dancehall sensation Masicka. This will be at the Amazura Night Club in New York, June 3, 2022.
