Macka Diamond

Text by Harry Hawks
Date Updated: Oct 30, 2015
Reggae, and dancehall reggae in particular, is infamous for its machismo stance and sexist outlook and to describe the opportunities for female artists as ‘limited’ in the male dominated world of Jamaican music is a massive understatement. A select few have managed to break through the glass ceiling but Macka Diamond has appears to have smashed it...

Kiddus I

Text by Jeremy Collingwood
Date Updated: Jun 23, 2014

He only ever pressed small numbers of copies of each single and hence they were difficult to find, even at the time release, which only added to the mystery of the man.
