Macka Diamond

The 'Dye Dye' queen, Macka Diamond, a fixture at regular street dances in the Corporate Area, has employed a new strategy by taking the country road to promote her new singles, 'Big Foot' and 'Karma', along the north coast, from Portland to Hanover.

She performed at Brimmer Vale High School in Port Maria last week, where throngs of schoolchildren reacted enthusiastically to hit singles Cow Foot, Dye Dye and Hula Hoop.

"After performing at the school, we shell the whole Ochi with promo CDs. The better part was touching down in MoBay and the second city gave us a warm welcome. Songs like Big Foot and Karma splash out a Heineken party. Then it was off to Exact Mondayz, flexing with Ryme Minista. It was a great look, vibe tun up when my new Bun Fi Bun song get dropped by DJ Krazy Jeff. Him deal wid it wicked and even draw Hula Hoop, and you woulda tink is a circus," Macka Diamond said.

Macka has grown into a versatile artiste with songs across a number of genres, from reggae to soca.

"Mi also use the chance fi get in some soca settings, because mi do mi soca song, Mash Up Di Road, with Blaxx from Trinidad, and the MoBay girls dem, like the Fresh Look girls dem, go gymnastics settings pon it. No sah, MoBay tun up loud. Next week, me and Timry ah go tek on Clarendon, Manchester and St Elizabeth."

She is getting a buzz with her new single, Big Foot, on the Stashment Records imprint. The video is in heavy rotation on HYPE TV, RE TV, LINKS, SWAG, and CVM TV.

In the meantime, the Spanish version of her breakout single, Dye Dye, which went number one on local and international charts, continues to get excellent rotation, giving the song a second boost.
