Jamaican Dancehall recording artiste and philanthropist Charmaine Munroe, known in music circles as Macka Diamond, is gearing up for her first charity concert this weekend.
The artiste, dedicated to the cause that connected with her months ago, is pleased to take the Pregnant Mothers in Need Foundation to another level since its launch on Mother’s day this year.
“It is definitely a cause dear to me because so many pregnant women are in need of help that could save their and their unborn child’s life. I remember being young and pregnant and so nervous and unsure, sometimes just a listening ear can help alleviate some stress,’ Macka expressed
The Online Charity Concert is set to be staged this Sunday from 3-8pm on Macka Diamonds Instagram Page (@mackadiamond1) and will feature some talented acts also lending their craft to the cause.
Performers include; Queen Kamala, Don Bones, Simple Cool Voice, Maestro Don, Alaine, I-Octane, Warrior King and Macka Diamond herself. The event is free to watch and will also have giveaways from special sponsors including Lasco I-Cool and Magic Malt.
“The purpose of this wonderful event is to raise funds so the foundation can help more expectant mothers have a safe delivery. We urge everyone to watch the concert and donate to the noble cause,” Macka added
The Macka Diamond Pregnant Mothers in Need charity has a Go-Fund-Me page that persons can donate any amount at any time. Macka Diamond is also working diligently on her Diamond In The Rough EP that she will be releasing in 2021.
