Dancehall artiste Macka Diamond defends crucifixion picture from upcoming video



Acclaimed Dancehall artist, Macka Diamond is out on the defensive after a picture leaked online from an upcoming video showing her hanging from a cross, mirroring the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The picture, taken from the shoot of her upcoming video for her single, Wicked Heart, triggered social media furor this past week, with some insisting she committed blasphemy by doing the act and crossed the line of artistic expression.

In a radio interview Friday, the Dye Dye singer denied this was the case, saying the picture and meaning behind it were taken out of context.

“To be frank, I was never looking at it that way. It’s since I’m seeing the comments (that) I really started to think about it,” she told IRIE FM. “According to Jamaican terms, we she, ‘Chu, people a crucify mi..dem nah get mi down.’ I wasn’t even thinking aobut this Jesus ting or nail mi hand...like I dying for nobody sins. It is not as deep as everybody is thinking.”

Macka said the scene was only done as a way to represent the recent criticisms fired her way, particularly since her controversial lyrical clash with long-time rival, Lady Saw at STING last December. Wicked Heart has been branded by many in the music industry as a diss track aimed at Saw.

This is not the first time an artist has done a crucifixion in his or her videos or songs. hip hop superstar, Nas pulled off a similar tactic in 1999, hanging from a cross in the visuals for his smash hit, Hate Me Now, which featured P Diddy.

Seven years later, pop legend, Madonna pulled off a mock crucifixion during a stage show performance in Germany, sparking outrage from church groups and music lovers alike.

The official video for Wicked Heart will be released in the coming weeks.
