'Dye Dye' was released one year ago and dancehall artiste Macka Diamond says it continues to open doors for her.

Macka Diamond said she recently did a show in Uganda, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

"It was a great trip. It was a pleasure touching my feet on the Motherland. It was like home," she told THE STAR.

Having been in Africa only last month, Macka Diamond says she is already making plans to return. She says she will be going to Gambia in April and Ethiopia in summer. She also has other shows lined up in Canada, Belize, Panama and the United Kingdom.

"A lot of African countries calling up right now ... it's great. The Dye Dye song is creating waves in some different places. They don't really know Macka Diamond until now. Dye Dye is opening different types of doors and more doors. The song still has substance and it nuh half finish yet," Macka Diamond said.

She noted that she is also surprised at how long the song has been doing well due to the generally short lifespan of dancehall songs. Nonetheless, she said the song has been helping her to gain even more male fans.

"I gained a lot of male fans so it balance out. Dye Dye mek mi finally conquer the male and female audience," she said.

And despite the hectic schedule, Macka Diamond says she is currently promoting Big Foot and will shoot the music video for the song on Friday. She added that the music video for her song, Wicked Heart, will also be released soon.
